ONE NIGHT ONLY - PAVILION THEATRE, DUN LAOGHAIRE
"The performances are beautifully nuanced, expertly shaped by the unfussy direction of Karl Shiels, and the writing by Stephen Jones is sharp and concise with hardly a word out of place."
★★★★★ – Michael Moffat, The Irish Mail on Sunday
"From Eden is as sharply contemporary as anything I've seen in its compassionate and intensely empathetic reading of the complexities of modern life."
"The situations in which the two characters find themselves have been a common reality for more than 30 years in our society, but the particular psychological damage portrayed is as tragically fresh as this morning's newspapers."
"Jones and Seána Kerslake play with such vulnerability that not even the most hardened and cynical observers could turn their backs on the tiny seeds of hope that they plant in each other's souls."
"one of the most acidly funny, needle-sharp short plays I've seen in quite a while."
"subtly and technically perfectly directed by Karl Shiels in an excellent set by Katie Davenport lit by Eoin Stapleton."
- Emer O'Kelly, The Sunday Independent
