Spoonface Steinberg - praise for this show

Spponface Steinberg has made a few stops on her travels before she reaches the Citizens in a few weeks time and so the first reviews are out. Here's what people had to say:

"It is genuinely extraordinary acting in that I truly never saw it as acting, just as I never saw any of her movements or handling of props as business, simply as Spoonface’s behaviour. In fact, as someone commented on the way out, there weren’t any props, just things lying around Spoonface’s bedroom.

"See this moving, funny, sad yet optimistic production if you can. You’ll not regret an hour spent with Spoonface and her self-effacing alter ego Zoe Thorne." THE STAGE


"It is therefore a measure of Zoe Thorne’s performance in the title role (and for most of the time she’s the only person on stage) that she not only holds the audience’s attention throughout but involves it fully in her character’s odd world. She’s entirely credible as this very young girl with a brain for which her body is not fit... As with autism itself, there are no real answers, partial or otherwise. But there is a heart in the matter, and Thorne’s performance is it." WhatsOnStage.com ****

"Zoe held us enthralled - we hung on every word. Funny, sad and thought provoking...a gift to anyone who is lucky enough to experience this and take away something of it in their hearts." Wikipedia
