reviews the erotica project
Greenwich Playhouse, Jan - Feb 2005
THE SUNDAY TIMES by Victoria Segal
"Vibrantly written and buoyantly performed… six brave actresses tackle their explicit material with a gleeful verve, surging around a cleverly designed set. Anyone who thought Sex and the City was upfront will blush at these stories, yet there are moments of sensitivity and insight… Tough-minded and (always a bonus) impressively supple."
THE STAGE by Barbara Lewis
"Only prudes would object to this post-feminist, post-politically correct show [and] it's glee in sexual discovery… The cast comprises six stunning, charming twenty-somethings who can groan, long and enlarge our vocabulary with incongruity. Escapist fun with an element of poignancy… championing female empowerment.”
THE MORNING STAR by Mike Parker
"Superbly performed and well-directed… Well-written and insightful, whether you approve or not.“
THE EVENING STANDARD by Matthew Sweet
"Imagine Jackanory presented by the staff of Agent Provocateur and you'll get the measure of The Erotica Project ... The entire company brings just the right note of irony coaxing comedy and pathos… spend the evening with The Erotica Project, you'll have fun."
INDIE LONDON by Emma Whitelaw
"Features stunning young actresses… all six temptresses are as equally entertaining as they are provocative… The play's themes are undeniably thought-provoking. Questions like 'who has the power?' arise and it becomes obvious that the writers certainly have a voice…There is so much potential in six sexually charged women; ready to play the game of love by their own rules.“
TIME OUT by Rachel Halliburton
"Poised between a pornographic pyjama party and The Vagina Monologues, this American play celebrates female sexuality in a series of guilt-free, exuberant fantasies… Certainly the cast is young and attractive enough to carry the show's sentiment off.”
WHAT'S ON IN LONDON by Peggy Leader
"The design is lush and evocative with a great soundtrack that successfully underpins the action… The good looking, nubile cast give fine performances. The writing is graphic, with explicit images and no imaginings left untouched".
