    Additional Information

    From Interview with Dougal Wilson (LITii video director) Feb. 2009: "He was...called Davies and he was brilliant...his face was so funny that we thought we'd put him in. We were just improvising and I said 'Imagine something strange has just happened and maybe swear'. And he did it brilliantly"

    Newsnight Review on "The Caravan":

    Peter Whittle (journalist and documentary maker): "The way theatre's got to go..Performances were wonderful… the skill of the great actors"

    Marina Lewycka (novelist): "Very moving, so engaging...; performances were very good"

    REVIEWS for "The Caravan" at the ROYAL COURT, 2009:

    "The acting is so good" - Lyn Gardner, 'The Guardian'

    "Exquisitely performed" - 'The Times'

    "The cast, who play victims from Oxford to Humberside, really deliver." - 'London Paper'

    "Full credit to the five-strong cast" - 'Whatsonstage'

    "Naturalistic performances of the five-strong cast who never caricature or patronise" - 'North London newspapers'

    REVIEWS for "The Caravan" (FRINGE FIRST WINNER 2008) at Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh:

    ***** 'The Metro' - "Performances are universally excellent, bringing to life the colourful interviewees in a way that sends shivers down your spine" - Zena Alkayat

    **** 'The Scotsman' - "The four actors are superb" - Joyce McMillan

    **** 'Fest' - "The actors' performances are breathtakingly impressive…the four give a master class in naturalism" - Hannah Thomas

    **** 'Time Out' - "The four-strong cast play many parts, pitching their performances very nicely between the demands of drama and honesty" - Caroline McGinn

    **** 'The British Theatre Guide' - "The actors are each versatile and effective" - Philip Fisher

    **** 'What's on Stage' - "The polyglot cast manage to recreate a myriad regional accents and individual gests, chameleonic performances which cannot fail to impress upon an audience the human faces of the flood victims. There is no room for criticism of the naturalistic flair of any of these performances" - Jack Smith
