****…a cluttered eyrie of evocative memorabilia in Cherry Truluck’s excellent design. Paul Taylor, The Independent, 2012

“Living in a chaotically overstuffed attic, so beautifully detailed in design by Cherry Truluck, it looks like the old second-hand shops that called themselves antique along the lanes in Brighton.”London Theatre Reviews

“Mother Adam is a thoughtful, moving play, featuring a couple of well-matched actors in an atmospheric production that clearly means a great deal to all involved. As such, it would be well worth a visit.” British Theatre Guide, 2012

[MOTHER ADAM] “finds a perfect home in this tiny venue (The Stage fringe theatre of the year) half-filled with Cherry Truluck’s atmospheric set, part grungy kitchen, part invalid’s bedroom.” The Stage, 2012

“I was happy to be in the comfort of Jermyn Street Theatre revisiting a blast from the all-but-forgotten past in such an exemplary production.” Mark Shenton, The Stage 2012

****”Jasper Britton as the mercurial Adam alternately bustles and kneels like a camp butler, his potential as an artist sucked away in the fifteen years he has spent looking after his mother. His very movements are constricted by the bed that dominates Cherry Truluck’s superbly detailed set.
“In a jewelled turban, framed by a gilded bedhead, Linda Marlowe is by turns faded Hollywood star, Greek Tragedy matriarch.
” Public Reviews 2012

**** “…a disturbing and very real sense of life and happiness hanging by a thread… holed up in an attic cluttered with old furniture and rancid memories, lovingly designed by Cherry Truluck and inhabited by [Linda] Marlowe in suburban splendour.” Whatsonstage.com, Michael Coveney 2012
