De JT Rogers


Résumé: Seizing the opportunity to research a book, Jack Exley uproots his family from Illinois to Rwanda in early 1994. Alarmingly out of depth, Jack begins a fervent search for his dear and missing friend while his wife and teenage son find trouble of their own. As Jack involves himself in the local politics, he discovers a pattern of brutality and beliefs that jeopardizes the lives of everyone around him.

Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Deftly effective and powerfully acted production...The Overwhelming gives political theatre serious allure." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "What the play has to say is important; but Rogers's dramatic technique is spasmodically flawed....The technical shortcomings are camouflaged by the speed and clarity of Max Stafford-Clark's Cottesloe production." JEREMY AUSTIN for THE STAGE says, "Powerful and evocative...A brilliant and horrifying evening’s theatre." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Best new play I've seen this year...one of the most entertaining. The drama has both comic and thriller-like elements, and something of the atmosphere of a Graham Greene novel." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Absorbing, uneven."
