“Flawless troupe… Hunt this one down right now.”
Inpress, 2005

“Jude Beaumont is outstanding as Matilda”
The Age, 2005

“A carnival like set, limbo competition and jaunty soundtrack combine with O’Neill’s snappy dialogue to set the tone for the rest of the performance – proving that a moral tale is a squillion times more effective when it’s told in an abstract way with irony and satire”
– Inpress, 2005

“Now in its fifth year, Theatre@Risk remains true to its manifesto of producing theatre that’s left of mainstream and politically conscious. The company prides itself on trying new ideas in form and content and deliberately shies away from narrative orthodoxy. Stalking Matilda fulfils all such criteria.”
The Australian, 2005

“While Stalking Matilda explores the popular theme of asylum seekers seen in an increasing number of recent productions, much credit must be given for its original composition.”
State of The Art, 2005
