A HISTORY OF FALLING THINGS

New Vic, Newcastle-under-Lyme

A thread of humour runs through the play, and Emma Lucia's production handles the gear changes to some touching moments very well. It is never cloying, and manages to walk the tightrope between eliciting sympathy for the characters' plight, and feeling frustrated at their inability to get better - The Sentinel

A DOLL’S HOUSE

Clwyd Theatr Cymru

Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, written in 1879, rapidly became the focus of feminism. This version, by Frank McGuinness, directed by Emma Lucia, creates a visceral and riveting evening. The play is created in the round, in the smaller Emlyn Williams Theatre, and benefits from the intimacy and closeness to the audience - Western Mail
