Role Thyestes
Director Polly Findlay
Arcola Theatre

the undoubted star is Jamie Ballard in the title role. Thyestes might be a villain, but his fate is unspeakable and the actor portrays disbelieving horror at his fate with rare and truly terrifying conviction. Philip Fisher
The British Theatre Guide

When the horrors come, Ballard must play extreme and almost incoherent agony, and does so with chilling exposure of raw emotion. Gerald Berkowitz

Jamie Ballard engrosses as Thyestes. When his silent screams greet the news of the death of his two sons the audience shudders in pain. Miriam Gillinson
The Metro

Jamie Ballard’s performance here is an unforgettable picture of helpless suffering. John Peter
