The Golden Dragon Reviews

Dramatically focused and unobtrusively intelligent * Financial Times *
Compelling - this play challenges the audience - recommended. * Public Reviews *
Schimmelpfennig's slow burn of a play offers another way of seeing - The beauty of the piece, and Ramin Gray's production, is that it reveals itself quietly and gradually - its intelligence and thoughtfulness is apparent * 4 stars - The Guardian *
Schimmelpfennig succeeds in making abstract notions about globalisation - and immigration - grippingly tangible - served up with copious helpings of inventive wit.., superb * Telegraph *
Provocative and playful - the surreal theatricality of this distinctive piece is vigorously conveyed * Evening Standard *
The play works by restraint - weaving its spell slowly but surely, with a spider's web delicacy - There are strong elements of folk tale to this story of exploitation in a globalised economy. Schimmelpfennig uncovers the nasty things that get shoved out of the sight of well-fed Westerners. * Metro *
