Review by Chris Patmore in Film & Festivals magazine: “Shot in that grimy urban style favoured by British filmmakers, CRACKED EGGS is described as a very black comedy, but it is just as much a drama with comedic and surreal moments. Jared Harris and Carol Starks are both excellent as the unhinged siblings Joe and Rosie, as is Jonathan McGuiness as Joe’s twitchy, paranoid friend…with the director managing to pack plenty of visual, dramatic and comedic twists into such a short space of time.”

Review in Wiener Zeitung, January 18th, 2008.

“HERO AND ZERO, the brilliantly constructed comedy by British writer Steve Jones, is playing at the Theater Drachengasse in the Bar & Co. space, in a refined and imaginative production directed by Elfriede Schüsseleder. Every moment of the actors is just right. The stellar quartet of actors (among them Eva Maria Neubauer) perform a range from wacky to reflective. The song and dance acts are perfect. Off-the-wall entertainment at its finest.”

In 2015, Hero & Zero was awarded a grant by the Lithuanian Council for Culture’s Stage and Art program and premiered at the Alytus City Theatre on September, 2015.

Director: Petras Lisauskas

A T.E.V. Production

 

This is what the headmistress of Hitherfield school in Streatham, South London had to say about the project: “I know I speak for all the pupils and teachers present when I say that it was a tremendously refreshing experience to see such a positive representation of some fundamental issues. As I commented at the time, the play’s central message of understanding and acceptance between different communities and ethnic groups could not be more appropriate for Hitherfield. Certainly it made a big impact on the children, even on those in years one and two, who still comment on it now. I wish you and the company every success for the future and hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again in our school at some point”. Ann Folley, Headmistress.
