What’s On ****

"The night belongs to Anna Lindup and her bleak emotional eloquence.
Anna Lindup’s Yana, as she relives the ethnic massacre in which she was forced to take part, places a clammy grip on your attention. She injects the dark tale with genuine horror, having a galvanising effect on both audience and the rest of the cast."

Mike Cocker, TV Director: of The Bill

(Anna gave) ". . a very impressive performance. I still think about it! "

International filmmaker/director of features, TV dramas and series

". . the second half of the play was stunning and (Anna Lindup) was a dream. A very brave and intense performance."

John Adam-Baker, Ipswich Theatre Director

"The performance of Anna Lindup was an exercise in controlled emotion, allowing us as the audience maximum empathy with the vulnerability and survivability of her character."

"Anna Lindup is commanding as Yana, a teacher who lies bruised and scabbed…..."

"Lindup drives the play with a sense of integrity and generosity
Lindup's performance …is so vivid we can see and feel her reliving the horrific events of the massacre. The final moments of the play, in which Lindup re-enacts the massacre, bring a sense of place terribly to life. As she retraces her steps through the events…the fact that we're in a room of execution hits home, and the performances and direction effectively create a strong sense of tension that brings the performance to a close."
