    Land of Our Fathers

    undeniably powerful... Paul Robinson's impressive production

    Michael Billington
    The Guardian

     a promising debut from writer Chris Urch, rich in character and with plenty of black comedy that’s well emphasized by Paul Robinson’s controlled direction. 

    William Moore
    Evening Standard

    The situation is compelling and the actors give their all under the direction of Paul Robinson from Theatre 503

    Philip Fisher
    British Theatre Guide

    Paul Robinson allows the drama to swell gradually amid Signe Beckmann’s cramped and coal-drenched set

    Miriam Gillinson
    Time Out

    a high-voltage production by Paul Robinson... Robinson’s production, on Signe Beckmann’s claustrophobic, pitch-black set, reeks of bitumen, testosterone and fear. Gripping

    Sam Marlowe
    The Times
    Full Review

    director Paul Robinson finds an effective balance between subtle moments and raw blasts of emotion... the sense of claustrophobia, panic and urgency really set in, leaving you sad and not a little shaken
