"The flailing arms and zombie stomps of Polly Bennett’s choreography recall the work of Hofesh Schecter..."

Matt Trueman, Variety 

"As the spirits of the underworld creep into Faustus’ life they bring all the imagery of an uncensored world – blood, extreme violence, drugs and sex all blended into impressive but challenging imagery. Polly Bennett’s movement direction is sharp, abstract and cheekily sinister, and as the play pulsates through with incredible aggressive power, it can feel like a bombardment of all the things we don’t want to see."

A Younger Theatre 

"Polly Bennett’s dark movement direction adds impact that reiterates this frankly disgusting world of evil you come to almost enjoy by curtain call."
