Press on this production

a brilliant piece of theatre…Voices from Chernobyl brings out what happened in all its complexity. It shows that Chernobyl’s effects are living on and are even bigger than the blow it struck to the Soviet regime. It’s the quiet heroism of the ordinary men and women, willing to sacrifice themselves for a greater cause without rewards or glory. Finally it puts before us – perhaps more than anything in the cold war era – a population betrayed by a regime that promised salvation. ★★★★★ Central and Eastern European London Review
