“What David Greig has written and Simon Kingsley Hall performs with elan and warmth, under the unobtrusive direction of Chris Bendall, is not only a city symphony for different voices, past and present, but also a contemporary and messy love story and a high-class entertainment”
– Owen Richardson, Sunday Age, 12/2/06

“Simon Kingsley Hall’s solo performance is energetic and mesmerizing… This is writing at its very best and it is wonderfully brought to life by the creative team… If you are interested in experiencing a night of innovative and stimulating theatre where all the elements – writing, performance, direction, video, set, lighting and sound work together then One Way Street is a must.”
– Jan Chandler, Melbourne Stage, 9/2/06

“David Greig’s writing is sharp and funny… Kingsley Hall’s acting is skilful in its lightning-fast alternations of character and accent… Within the context of contemporary Europe, this is a particularly resonant theme, resonant with global significance in a world of permeable national borders.” –
– Helen Thomson, The Age, 9/2/06

Kingsley Hall is simply brilliant. Directed by Chris Bendall, his performance is energetic, animated and completely endearing… I couldn’t wait to hear what they would say next. Kelly Ryall’s original music added another layer of jauntiness to the atmosphere. When I clapped at the end of this show, I realised I had the most gigantic smile on my face. Let’s hope theatre@risk run this again soon”
