The first one we could find, anyway, from the OMH website, describes the play as “terrifically acted,” noting that “Rothenberg, an up-and-coming Hollywood actor, convinces as the pushy salesman with an agenda.” We will continue the hunt for more info.
We found snippets of a few more reviews at The Assembly Rooms 2006.
The actors put in a stunning performance with enthralls the audience. You continue to try and second-guess the writer all the way through this production, and find yourself getting into the characters’ shoes and feeling every up and every down they experience – you also keep wishing you could press fast forward to skip to the end just to satisfy your curiosity. So, couple inspired acting with a twist no one could guess, and you cannot fail to enjoy this clever and entertaining production.
**** Three Weeks, 17th August 2006
Three tightly disciplined performances as a would-be property developer, his siren-like banker (Mindy Crist, recognisable from top-end US television shows such as Six Feet Under and 24 and the mysterious third man who, in a top-class performance from Adam Rothenberg, is never quite what he seems… A terse and effective account of how their lives are emotionally hollowed out from the inside, unable to connect on any human level… Glengarry Glen Ross with added sex and violence – top-class.
*** The Times, 15th August 2006
This European premiere is played with flair and conviction – with a very powerful performance by Josh Stamberg as the menacing Ferguson. It’s a compelling piece, confidently directed… by Amy Glazer, and you can’t fault it’s seriousness of intent.
