“ The Linbury’s stage is laid bare – tabs removed and sightlines to the back and side walls and the set – with its large concrete circle dominating the stage, looked as if a bomb had hit it, with broken rocks strewn around the side. ...... If you can’t get to it (and, not surprisingly, it is sold out), hope that ROH2 plan an early revival. ”

“ The Linbury, exposed to its bare walls, is the scene of an environmental disaster. The sisters live in a post-apocalyptic world, inhabiting a desolate, ruined landscape so that one wonders how the flora and fauna survive which Silvia assures us sustain her. Gernando and Enrico arrive wearing suits designed to protect them against chemical and nuclear warfare, but disrobe on arrival on the island.”
