The Seagull Reviews
Ian Andrew from Perth, Western Australia
The task of getting Chekov’s themes across can be difficult for actors. In Jamie Lloyd’s stripped back stage and devoid of period costume, the actors are forced to deliver by sheer raw talent - and deliver they do. Lifting Chekov’s masterpiece from an undressed set to the inner eye of the audience with superb timing, empathy and conviction. Clarke reinforces that the 'Mother of Dragons’, surrounded by green screens in her most famous role needs none of it to give a performance. She is the real deal and away from the movies that will continue to come her way, she proves eminently capable of holding her own on the barest of boards at the cutting edge of her chosen profession. The rest of the cast are equally good, however I was most enthralled by Tamsin Outhwaite’s portrayal of Polina. Understated, broken-hearted, bitter, resentful and loving in a single breath.
