REVIEWS

***** NIRBHAYA - THEATRE REVIEW
Great theatre requires the intercession of the human imagination, and this piece combines the presentation of unbearable facts with ingenious aesthetics in a manner so brilliant that it is, surely, one of the most powerful and urgent pieces of human rights theatre ever made.

***** NIRBHAYA
This is consciousness-raising theatre of the old school, emphasising the fact that Pandey's suffering has lifted the veil of silence regarding violence against women in India and beyond. As one performer says, "We can be silent no more." That is reason enough to see this urgent, compelling show.

Their stories full of tears and rage, their songs, their radiance, and above all, their shared determination that this death, among so many, will be the one that changes things, for good.

**** NIRBHAYA - EDINBURGH REVIEW
At a time when rape threats have become casual social media currency, it's intensely sobering to have a play like this that reminds us so viscerally of the real horrors of sexual violence.
