a skilled cast that works together to create a sense of unease and anxiety, The God Of Hell is an entertaining yet extraordinarily
realistic and horrifying reflection of our ever-changing world. 4/5 stars" THE BRAG
'...a deeply interesting and absorbing play that makes you
laugh even as you might shudder at the relevance of its underlying implications. It's beautifully realised and hugely
entertaining. Another triumph for independent theatre."
DIANA SIMMONDS, STAGE NOISE
"...inventive, exuberant and sophisticated. It is a very
good looking show...Fisher's direction is lively and precise, with a surprising clarity that always places emphasis on
the narrative...The four actors too, are impressively believable, while being quite dazzlingly entertaining." SUZY
"Fisher's direction was equally as beautiful and transfixing as his design. Not a new kid on the block,
his experience and expertise shone through his actors, their movement and convictions were firm and unwavering. The silences
were filled with purpose. Intent was clear, gripping and well guided." THEATRE UNZIPPED
"Sometimes a single performance
blazes from a production to illuminate all around it...Downing's wide-eyed, slow-voiced portrayal fills us with wonder
as she puzzles over just how and why her all-too-familiar world is imploding...a very fine production." JOHN SHAND,
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

Old Fitz is for you." CONCRETE PLAYGROUND
"Powered by a hot as Hades script and performances from an awesome foursome."
SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
"Fisher, cast and crew deserve to be commended on effectively bringing back to the stage a play that
has many, many, messages, which now, more than ever, need to be heard." OZ BABY BOOMERS
