Review Roundup…I See You @Royal Court Theatre

This production sees Noma Dumezweni making her directorial debut – but does it work? 

The Telegraph: *** Claire Allfree said: “despite the flaws Mongiwekhaya brings modern South Africa’s psychological apartheid strongly into focus.”

The Stage: **** Natasha Tripney thought that it is : “a sure-footed, intelligent and gripping production.”

WhatsOnStage: *** Holly Williams wrote: “I See You is rarely very affecting – but as a window onto the power and identity struggles of another society, it’s certainly a fascinating watch.”

There Ought to Be Clowns: ” I See You is a fascinating, if horrifying, insight into an aspect of contemporary South Africa that it is perhaps not often considered.”

Time Out: *** Andrzej Lukowski found that: “in some ways its faults are its strengths: it’s pared back, exciting and easy to follow.”

Gay times: **** “Noma Dumezweni, the woman of the moment, directs with precision and confidence making it difficult to believe it’s her debut.”

The Evening Standard: **** Fiona Mountford commented: “It’s all credit to both Dumezweni and Mongiwekaya that the piece is infused with the mounting tension of a thriller, even if there are a few holes in the script.”

I See You runs at the Royal Court Theatre until the 26th March. For more information and to book tickets visit:
