2019Well done..., Christopher Poke... for his vivid, hateful depiction of Defence Counsel, tasked with tearing the women's testimony to shreds.
Jane Fae

2019A tight-knit group of actors present this timeless tale of love and misunderstanding with commendable flare.
Claudia Roncallo

2019Other standouts were Christopher Poke . . . His handling of the blinding scene amongst others was expertly pitched.

2014Christopher Poke’s Mr Nott and Jesse Cooper’s tabloid hack are particularly convincing.
