Reviews of Creditors

New Zealand Herald:  "90 minutes of hauntingly intense psychological warfare, jam-packed with stimulating ideas and punctuated by moments of wickedly gleeful humour. . . . placed extraordinary demands on the actors, and the superb cast rise to the challenge. . . . The triangle is powerfully closed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand's mercurial performance as the alluring and infuriating Tekla - a restless, volatile woman who flits between frivolous vanity, steely determination and moments of selfless compassion".

Theatreveiw:  "Jennifer Ward-Lealand is a warm, playful Tekla. Keith Adams goes through periods of nervousness, rage and despair as Adolf negotiates his emotional maze. Michael Lawrence in particular changes gears as he moves from Gustav of act one to Gustav of act three. . . . Ultimately, sexual politics remain as relevant today as ever".
