Reviews for Ben Hur (April 2022)
Review from audience member for Ben Hur performed at Brixham Theatre, in April 2022, received on email
I thoroughly enjoyed your production of Ben Hur. What a great story! A story line that mirrored our lives over the last few years. The Romans versus the Jews/Putin versus Ukraine; leprosy forcing families apart just like the pandemic and then the death of Christ on the cross just as we approach Easter. I (and others I spoke to) was profoundly moved in the second half when Ben Hur flouted the rules and hugged his mum. It makes me well-up just thinking about it. So many unable to have physical contact through the present pandemic made it an all too familiar experience.
I loved Ben Hur's clear, confident and steady speech throughout his performance.
The power and strength exuding from the guys who played the parts of those in authority were tremendous.
The actor who loved Ben Hur and took care of his mum and sister was totally convincing and pulled at my heart strings. Her accent added to the poignancy.
Ben Hur's mum is such a good actress - as is the lady with the American(?) accent. They make it seem so effortless!
I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to coriagraph the rowing. Super!
I thought I would miss the chariot race scene but the fighting between the gladiators, and then Ben Hur and his Roman ex- best friend was totally gripping - and with all the gymnastics and very good use of sound tracks (throughout the play) - it was really clever.
There were a number of young children in the audience. They were so well behaved that I assumed they were experienced theatre goers. I spoke to their parents - they were not experienced - just enthralled! They thoroughly enjoyed the outrageous Scot and his obvious preference for horses over humans!
All in all - well done everyone! What a triumph! I do hope I will see you all on stage again soon.
Thank you all for such an enjoyable afternoon. Time well spent even though the sun was out and there were major sports events running at the same time. I made the right decision to come and watch the South Devon Players.
Very best wishes,
