Glowing reviews for Donmar Warehouse's FORCE MAJEURE

Tuesday, January 11, 2022

‘This show is a triumph and a wonder to behold. Director Michael Longhurst and his tremendous cast have pulled off a dazzling production that entertains and unsettles’ The Observer *****

'It's a delight to see such a dazzlingly theatrical show as my first new play of 2022. If you’re up for seeing some theatre right now, there’s plenty of light in the darkness' TimeOut **** 

‘Seeing the moral debate acted out live, and seeing the way director Michael Longhurst compresses dazzling alpine expanses into the Donmar, is undeniably thrilling.’ Evening Standard **** 

‘Michael Longhurst’s production is supremely stylish, rising with panache to the challenge of representing epic landscapes and near-apocalyptic disaster. Its intimate drama is just as impressive…It’s bilious bourgeois crisis impeccably observed, an exuberantly enjoyable collision of snark and spectacle.’ – the i **** 

’Two big recommendations: first, FORCE MAJEURE at the @DOnmarWarehouse. If this doesn’t have families debating men, women, mothers and fathers and the power of stereotpes, nothing will. And it’s funny.’ @DAaronovitch
