Reviews of the premiere season of The Present
“If you are lucky enough to be in Sydney, this is a night of theatre you can’t afford to miss,” noted Nancy Groves in The Guardian of “Andrew Upton’s masterful adaptation of Chekhov’s novice play. Their (Blanchett and Roxburgh) chemistry is electrifying as ever. Masterfully choreographed by director John Crowley.”
Jo Litson of the Sunday Telegraph praised the “brilliantly blistering Sydney Theatre Company production. Both (Blanchett and Roxburgh) draw on deep, uninhibited, emotional reserves and their chemistry is electric. As Upton prepares to leave STC at the end of the year, The Present is a thrilling parting gift.”
“Roxburgh and Blanchett are superb” pronounced the Daily Telegraph’s Chris Hook, adding “It’s very much an ensemble effort and all the richer for it. The Present is an exquisitely enjoyable outing to cherish.”
