THE HOMECOMING

Glasgow Citizens Theatre

Lenny in The HomecomingTHE SUNDAY TIMES
“A magnificently sinister evening…Paul Albertson’s brutish Lenny, a rat in hyena’s clothing circles his father with more than usual hostility”

John Peter

THE LIST
“….the oppressive set encloses the family in its dark world, while the livid scarlet ceiling suggests the sticky undercurrent of violence. The cast is uniformly superb”

Andrew Burnet

FINANCIAL TIMES
“Paul Albertson absolutely knows how to extract ever jot of ambiguity from the role of his son Lenny, weak or strong? threatening or panicking? pimp or tart? friend or traitor?”

Seacape ProductionTHE TIMES
“The angular movements of Paul Albertson and Lise Stevensons as the lizards are both convincing and captivating, and I enjoyed hearing Albertson’s strained voice, like Tony Curtis courting Monroe in some like it hot”

Jeremy Kingston

THE LIST
“Paul Albertson and Lise Stevenson present a beautifully choreographed mix of wide-eyed wonder and twitchy bravura.”

LOOK BACK IN ANGER

Glasgow Citizens Theatre

Jimmy Porter Look Back in Anger OneSCOTLAND ON SUNDAY
“A white hot gem of a production”

Joyce McMillan

SUNDAY EXPRESS
“Much of the credit for this should go to Paul Albertson, who takes on the lead with a truly phenomenal force and intensity. His Jimmy, a shaven headed, goatee bearded cockney, posses a blistering, dark and dangerous incandescence, an almost pheral physical charisma. At the same time, though, Albertson displays a breathtaking delicacy of control and subtlety of expression.” Sue Wilson


THE HERALD
“Paul Albertson’s Porter is no melodramatic, raging wronged man, but one who rails against apathy, a particularly insidious disease of the nineties, with sardonic languor. Perhaps he is a little stoned? no matter, his disgruntled defensiveness is certainly compelling”

Sara Villiers

 

THE FATHER

Glasgow Citizens Theatre

THE SUNDAY TIMES
“One of the best Strindberg’s I have ever seen…”

“…observe, too, Paul Albertson, who doubles as the lecherous young soldier and the anxious doctor in a small, but lethal, tour de force.”

John Peter
