It was a great story with these two women, one set in present day the other 175 years ago. The actresses were very expressive and through their words and actions pulled me into it. I could see what they were describing. Great direction with a minimal amount of set pieces on stage. I think anymore it would have taken away from the message. I had an excellent time!... full review

Artfully directed and lit. Bravely acted - particularly by bree fernicke, whose accent was impeccable. Laila Abdo had issues with the Ipswich accent, frequently pronouncing muslim as mooslim which was distracting. However, my main issue with this play was simply that it came across as a very superficial rendering of what a middle aged man imagines about the female experience - made even worse by the too-daring choice to take on the experience of a female jihadi. It came across as clumsy, surface level and often cartoonish. Real psychological insight or research was lacking. I was very confused by this play and its acclaim. It seemed like a white liberal 101 guide to brown people, and frequently strayed into racist stereotypes. It's always so... full review

I saw "Echoes" this week and loved it. The acting is great, and the way the actors' stories play off each other really works. I'm not surprised it's getting kudos and was selected as a "pick of the Fringe." See it soon, before it closes!!... full review

OLIVIA SCHLUETER-COREY certified reviewer · June 13, 2018
This was a deeply powerful story about the dangers of religious extremism and opportunistic patriarchal interpretations of religion. The parallels between the two women's lives, nearly 200 years apart, was a succinct exploration of how the more things change the more they stay the same. Brilliant performances by both actresses, exploring the ranges of their experiences from passionate idealism to desperation for justice. ... full review

Excellent script, excellent actors - both Catherine and Bree play their parts incredibly well, so captivating. A full 1 hour of being drawn into a sophisticated and deep story - and one very relevant for today's times. GO SEE IT! Well done everybody!... full review
