Irish Press Reviews ‘This latest production from Randolf SD is ample proof that this young company is one to watch.’ Sunday Tribune ‘ The acting is first class, with Quinn, in particular, unfailing in his ability to pull a few emotional punches ‘ Metro **** ‘Randolf SD are close to superb under Wayne Jordan’s direction and in his design ….A chilling, deeply moving combination of menace and barely repressed pathos.’ Sunday Independent ‘ bright as Benetton, tranquil as a Zen garden, unsettling as a muffled cry. ‘ Irish Times ‘Wayne Jordan’s production chooses to add colour to the Beckettian bleakness inherent in Crimp’s text, transforming what might seem a purely derivative exercise into something altogether original.’ Sunday Business Post ‘Things are definitely looking up / brighter light /more frequent boating /more confident smile /things are improving day by day / who ever would’ve guessed?’ Fewer Emergencies is a trilogy of short plays about the world we live in and our determined struggle to maintain it. From an exploration of the starch existence of a truly desperate housewife to a glimpse in to the mind of a school shooter, this fast-paced thriller rips apart the fragile world of affluence to expose the chaos and violence whispering beneath our dinner party patois. ‘a triptych of vicious modern fairy tales from Martin Crimp that bring the nightmare right back home and stabs you through the soul’-The Guardian This production is kindly supported by Project Arts Centre and The Abbey Theatre.
