Critic Reviews (8)

Time Out London
February 6th, 2020

Buzzing with Dizzee Rascal tunes and daffy energy...Stevenson’s performance feels undeniable, soaked in the sweat of a ’00s east London that’s not quite Dizzee Rascal’s, but authentically hers.'

The Telegraph (UK)
February 5th, 2020

In a moment when we risk being torn apart by culture wars, Poet in Da Corner feels like a show for our times: not only bitingly aware of precisely these issues, but daringly inclusive, too.'

For a previous production

...an energetic, exuberant gig-theatre show, built with theatrical savviness on Dizzee Rascal's iron-strong foundation...It's really deftly done. Stevenson is a witty wordsmith...'

The Stage (UK)
September 26th, 2018
For a previous production

Stevenson’s story is one of rage and trauma, but also comedy...Ola Ince’s production is an epiphany and game-changer. It throws away the rulebook and opens your ears and eyes to what theatre could and should be.'
