Reviews for Death of a Salesman
- “Seventy years on, my, how this masterpiece resonates and devastates afresh” The Telegraph
- “The result is a transformative, brilliant staging which offers a dazzling new look at a dazzling play, demonstrating once again that Miller’s words, written in 1949, can speak across ages, times and cultures.” What’s On Stage
- “The cast are exemplary throughout, the performances rich and moving, the production revelatory and atmospheric,” The Stage
- “This brilliantly reimagined take on the Arthur Miller classic is powered by a phenomenal black-led cast” Time Out
- “Complimented by a superlative cast, Pierce is the play’s real draw” The UpComing
- “It’s a production that proves two unassailable facts: first, it underlines the absolute universality and reach of Miller’s story; but secondly it attests to the power of performance and gives some stunning black actors access to roles that have been historically denied to them.” London Theatre
- “The sense of waste, the agony of loss and disappointment are summed up in a triumphant celebration of survival.” The Arts Desk
- “Arthur Miller’s 1949 play Death of a Salesman is a cast-iron classic, and this is a very solidly wrought production, given an extra sheen thanks to the casting of a black central family“ Independent

White Teeth Reviews
Reviews for White Teeth are in!
- “You raise a cheer for Smith and for this lively, light-footed adaptation that they know how to celebrate the gooey mess that ends up sticking to the bottom.” The Independent
- “The best moments in this show come straight from Smith’s novel, especially her biting observations on British hypocrisy, and on the sting of being patronised or erased by a not-entirely-welcoming city.” Time Out
- “THERE is surely no better place to stage Zadie Smith’s big-hearted yet unsentimental debut novel than this north London theatre, located in the same part of the capital where it is set.” Metro
Nenda has been cast in White Teeth at the Kiln Theatre
Reviews for The Watermill Theatre’s production of Jerusalem are in!
- “This wonderfully involving three-act play opens with Nenda Neurer as Phaedra singing Jerusalem with a kind of sweetly knowing innocence. What follows is both a compelling story but also a brilliantly crafted meditation on what it is to be of an ancient land where continuity and chaos, truth and fiction, hope and despair are all wrapped up into an enthralling mixture.” The Spy in the Stalls
- “The superb ensemble, meanwhile, make the bravura dialogue sound as revitalising as ever and you’re going to have to fight your way in to get a seat.” The Telegraph
- “Jerusalem reveals a yearning for a bygone Britain that never existed a once magnificent Holy Land of fairies, Arthurian legends and Stonehenge giants. The reminder could not be more relevant.” The Guardian
- “It’s just all so rich, so full of energy and passion. Three hours simply fly by. This vision of England, at once fantastical and real, funny and tragic, wild and profound is a modern classic.” What’s on Stage
- ” We see our need for something – or someone – bigger than ourselves reflected reflected back at us. So never mind the size of the stage, this modern great play remains immense” The Times
Nenda has been cast in Jerusalem at the Watermill Theatre 21 June – 21 July

Reviews for The Borrowers
Reviews for The Borrowers are starting to come in:
- “Her spirited daughter Arrietty, the excellent Nenda Neurer” British Theatre Guide
- “In many ways The Watermill breaks the rules of how to entertain kids, yet despite its lack of whizz bang theatricals, The Borrowers keeps a young audience totally enthralled throughout.”
- “The cast is small, but ridiculously talented. They act, sing, dance and play instruments. All of them! It’s captivating form start to finish. Muddy Stilettos
- “Retaining much of the text of the original 1952 novel, Theresa Heskins; script has a strongly nostalgic sense of time and place, leavened by a few mildly humorous modern touches.” The Stage
Nenda will next be seen as Arrietty in The Borrowers at the Watermill Theatre (16th November – 31st December)
