Excerpts from reviews of EVE, May 2012

     Only five more chances to watch Brisbane theatre luminary Margi Brown Ash crawl beneath the skin of Australia’s Virginia Woolf, the enigmatic Eve Langley. Season must close Saturday 26 May.

“Eve will be one of the finest examples of independent theatre you’d be likely to see anywhere in Australia this year.”
    "…a dark, brilliant and creative post mortem deep into the heart, mind and varying personas of Eve…"

“…an exquisite and intricate work… […] It will hold you captive and captivate you from the moment you walk into the theatre and right through to the curtain call.”
– Kelli Rogers, Australian Stage

     “The exquisite Margi Brown Ash gifts her audience an introduction with a beautiful and sensitive portrayal of Langley and the drive of the artist to create and to be free to do so."

"Margi Brown Ash does not perform but rather evokes Langley to the stage… […] It truly is a stunning performance and perhaps more than that, proof of Margi’s fascination and empathy for a misunderstood woman who was "ahead of her time"." – Sonny Clarke, Aussie Theatre
    …a really powerful piece of theatre…”

“Margi always puts 150% of herself into her performances.” – Scott Spark, ABC612
 
"This is a show not to be missed. […] there is something so bold and fearless about Margi’s performance as Eve Langley that it almost defies description. But there it is. She is bold and fearless, powerful and vulnerable, passionate and selfish, determined and defiant and absolutely bloody marvellous.”
– Xanthe Coward, XS Entertainment
    "The script is beautiful and stylistic, and moves much like poetry itself… It is an absolute pleasure to see a highly trained and experienced actor on stage. Margi’s voice is a marvel. […] Actors, go and see this as an example of what the human theatrical voice should be." – David Burton, Actors Greenroom
