Press for Stripped
★★★★★ "It is a play that shuns excess. Words are unfolded by wit, each thought picked up, turned around, and thrown back into the mix. There are no spare parts" A Younger Theatre
★★★★ "Stripped stimulates our thoughts and opens up a discussion - surely two of the main reasons we choose to go to the theatre" Broadway World
★★★★ "When the lights go up we feel the urge to talk about it, unable to make up our minds. A superb embodiment of relatable situations" Everything Theatre
★★★★ "Thoroughly entertaining and gaspingly funny... "Stripped" is a nuanced, thought-provoking piece of drama that will stimulate discussion long after the final bows."
Spy in the Stalls
For The Melting Pot @ The Finborough Theatre
The Guardian "Max Elton’s excellent production is alert to the play’s topicality and there are strong performances from Steffan Cennydd as the young idealist, Whoopie van Raam as his gentile lover and Peter Marinker doubling effectively as a Jewish patriarch and a Russian monster."
★★★★ The Arts Desk "Elton's direction sings...top dollar production deserves a bigger stage"
British Theatre Guide "The Melting Pot is a wonderful discovery that has not been seen in London for 80 years and receives a gripping revival in the sure hands of Max Elton...the producers should be looking for a transfer"
★★★★ Broadway World
For Big Brother Blitzkrieg @ King's Head Theatre
★★★★★ "Brilliantly written" What's Off Stage
★★★★ "Consistently funny and increasingly tense” The Upcoming
★★★★ “A smart, incisive and often brutal gem of a show” London City Nights
“Good show. Great performances” Nick Robinson, Former BBC Political Editor and Today Show Presenter
“Hysterically Funny” British Theatre Guide
"Gloriously manipulative and cleverly characterized" A Younger Theatre
“A dose of hyper-surreal comedy that offers a biting satirical notion behind its ludicrous premise” Bargain Theatre
For Leftovers @ Tristan Bates Theatre
★★★★ "Behind every joke are layers of meaning, pain and real problems we aren't talking about. A wonderful evening out, a story that goes from strength to strength." Theatre Full Stop
★★★★ "Equally comical and poignant. Rous-Eyre spent two months in Nairobi collecting stories of refugees, which he then layered with humour and satire, making this fresh play undoubtedly resonant." Remote Goat
"Not only entertains, but educates... Tremendously entertaining as well as value for money. Run and get your tickets." Urbon Dash
Leftovers was long listed for The King's Head Theatre's Adrian Pagan Award 2015.
