Review of ‘Hero and Zero’

The ‘Wiener Zeitung’ (Vienna Magazine) published this review of the play ‘Hero and Zero’ today:

“HERO AND ZERO, the brilliantly constructed comedy by British writer Steve Jones, is playing at the Theater Drachengasse in the Bar & Co. space, in a refined and imaginative production directed by Elfriede Schüsseleder. Every moment of the actors is just right. The stellar quartet of actors (among them Eva Maria Neubauer) perform a range from wacky to reflective. The song and dance acts are perfect. Off-the-wall entertainment at its finest.”

Cast:  Eva Maria Neubauer, Vanessa Payer- Kumar, Christina Trefny and Werner Landsgesell.

Testimonial on the T.I.E play ‘Baloopa’s Journey’

‘Baloopa’s Journey’ a Theatre in Education play, directed by Eric Loren, toured London schools this autumn. This is what the headmistress of Hitherfield school in Streatham, South London had to say about the project:

“I know I speak for all the pupils and teachers present when I say that it was a tremendously refreshing experience to see such a positive representation of some fundamental issues. As I commented at the time, the play’s central message of understanding and acceptance between different communities and ethnic groups could not be more appropriate for Hitherfield. Certainly it made a big impact on the children, even on those in years one and two, who still comment on it now. I wish you and the company every success for the future and hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again in our school at some point”.

Ann Folley, Headmistress.

The Kensington & Chelsea Mail reviews the Finborough Theatre’s new writer’s festival:

“…follows two successful programmes. Last week Cracked Eggs, a very black comedy by Steve Jones, went down a storm. This was about a drug-dealer who, high on acid, cracks someone over the head with a machete.”
