Song of Riots performed for full houses in Oxford and the list of praise from both audiences and press is long. Here are a few quotes:
The Oxford Times: “FLAWLESS..An interesting, inventive and polished show that asks important questions.. explosive.. bold and fresh..thrilling .. impeccable..virtuosity with polished performances of the highest calibre, whether they are singing, rapping, performing complex movements or purely acting.”
Oxford Theatre Review: “Powerful and effervescent, creating a poignant perspective on adolescence.
The Oxford Student: “Song of Riots is a furious, heart-rending work of theatre… a remarkably empathetic production. .. an expert study in anger, isolation and masculinity.. Callender and Finnegan give brilliant performances in this respect, highlighting the combination of danger and vulnerability that lies at the heart of the production.”
Stagetalk Magazine: “The acting and dancing were physical and vibrant – a wonderful way to portray a difficult subject.”
