Oblique drama on father daughter relationship partly successful
This article is from 2011.
As a vehicle for Art Malik’s powerful and practised acting skills, this oblique drama about a father and daughter’s troubled relationship is strongly successful. His daughter Keira, however, is quite shrill when playing a child. But the play’s theme of identity takes so long to emerge fully that at times the show seems a little directionless, despite the taut structure and stylish staging.
