Reviews for Imogen Stubbs in 'Things I Know To Be True'
Imogen Stubbs receives stunning reviews for her performance as Fran in Frantic Assembly’s production Things I Know To Be True.
The press on Imogen and Things I Know To Be True:
- “Fran is very much the dominant figure and Imogen Stubbs, playing her with a strong north-country accent, intelligently invests her with a rasping anger that conceals her passionate love for her fractured family” Michael Billington, The Guardian
- “The best sections are the least dramatic; the battles between Imogen Stubbs’s Fran and her eldest daughter Pip…are powerful” Sarah Crompton, What’s On Stage
- “This use of movement is matched by six wonderful performances. Imogen Stubbs’ Fran is particularly strong, a slightly spiteful harridan of a matriarch whose bitterness at the inescapability of middle class life erupts in occasionally callous interactions with her children.” 4 stars, Tim Bano, The Stage
- “…it’s the scenes between hardened eldest daughter Pip (Natalie Casey) and her punitive mother Fran (a formidable Imogen Stubbs) that sting of the hottest, burning suffering. Both Stubbs and Casey brilliantly convey the fervent hatreds even in the most intimate relationships, and in the most ordinary lives.” 4 stars, Sarah Carson, Radio Times
- “It is the bitter scenes between Stubbs and the excellent Natalie Casey, as eldest daughter Pip, that truly sting.” 5 stars, Chris Bennion, The Telegraph
- “Superbly portrayed by Imogen Stubbs” 4 stars, Paul Taylor, The Independent
- “Fran is a force to be reckoned with as the matriarchal figure in the family, and her plight, captured strikingly by Imogen Stubbs is all too painful to behold as we see a mother struggling to communicate openly with her children. It truly is a stand out performance.” 5 stars, Richard Earl, British Theatre
- “Fran’s independence is fierily conveyed by Imogen Stubbs” 4 stars, Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard
