Damien with Jo Loth in Mind Games
Loth is an incredibly skilled and committed performer, swapping between personas at a moment’s notice and bringing each character to life with rich physicality and a distinctive vocal quality.
Her accompanist Damien Slingsby is a wonder, accompanying both on piano and electric guitar, expertly beat-boxing and even singing a song of his own which touches the heart with its simplicity and sincere emotion.

Damien in a Glass of Twilight
Drysdale and lighting designer, Michael Richards, have achieved a dramatic effect in this play by dimming the lights in between segments of the letters, whilst the character moved to different parts of the stage. However, it is the beautiful and competent music by composer Damien Slingsby in these darkened moments that creates an atmosphere of emotional outpouring. Slingsby played a continuous themed composition, which provided moments of climatic tension to the piece.
