“Through large doses of humour and satire, Babel Towers manages to be both a highly theatrical and very engaging new work dealing with a difficult and challenging theme about mandatory detention of asylum seekers.”
Steven Fennelly, Radio 774, 2003

“Theatre@Risk have been around for a little while now, and have established a reputation for outstanding performances and choice of works. The comedy in Babel Towers is very well handled, and works best at its most slapstick and physical moments with comic timing sharpened to a fine point.”
John Bailey, Beat, 2003

“Babel Towers is a powerful and important new Australian work of social commentary. Were this piece performed in the prohibitive world it depicts, its performers would be arrested for subversion. Performances are raw, intense and energetic.”
Craig Martin, Stageleft, 2003
