    Additional Information

    Reviews:

    Salome

    'Cheska Hill-Wood's portrayal of Herodias is particularly enjoyable, poised and pragmatic, she provides a delightful contrast to the emotive, instinctive actions of the other characters' - Female Arts ****

    '...Cheska Hill-Wood’s understated and precise Herodias, has the same freshness with her lines, but whose emotions never seem undersold' - The F Word

    'Cheska Hill-Wood, came into her own as a mother defending the actions of her daughter and defending her honour against the ramblings of the prophet Jokanaan' - Frost Magazine

    'Cheska Hill-Wood as Herodias is a powerful balance to Slater’s Herod, and creating vivid and eloquent characterisation with comparatively less to go on in terms of script' - Remotegoat ****

    House of Atreus

    'Cheska Moon's Clytemnestra is sheer magnificence, her cruel beauty and elegance permeating in every step and phrase'

    - Everywhere Theatre****

    '...Moon has presence'

    - The Times

    'Cheska Moon is a tall, elegantly beautiful Clytemnestra - Cruel but charming'

    -Remotegoat****

    'Cheska Moon is suitably chilly as Clytaemnestra'

    '

    'Moon and Williams provide a bit of sparkle as the tango-dancing Clytaemnestra and Ageisthus'

    -Pen & Poise

    '..Moon's Clytemnestra oozes regality and brutality to create a devastating portrayal' - What's Peen Seen

    Dr Faustus

    '..stand out performance could be found in Cheska Moon as Mephistophilis

    '...Moon's interpretation was sinister, very obviously the focus of the action, dark and extensive eye makeup accentuating the whites of her eyes. As the play developed we became aware that the reflective but changeable Faustus was a deliberate contrast with this splendidly riveting devil.' - Neil Forsyth

    Cheska Moon's first appearance as Mephistophilis presented the complete epitome of a demon from hell. However as the play developed Moon brought some brilliant new emotional levels to the character so that the audience soon found themselves both warming to and sympathising with this notorious villain.' - Suite 101

    '...with Cheska Moon's jerky, spiderlike Mephistopholes sending shivers down the spine' -The Shakespeare Trail

    'Her movement resembles a bird of prey: talons, beaked, with sharp head movements, disporting black feathers. The overwhelming feeling of inevitability ratchets up tension.'

    Extra Extra

    Titus Andronicus

    '...in a cast full of testosterone, Cheska Moon gives an excellent manipulative and sexy performance as goth queen Tamora' - The Londonist
