'Gazing at a Distant Star': Carns Theatre Passion (5 stars) The reveal of Karen's story is sudden and brutal and then the superb Porter kicks up a gear in intensity. It is Karen, and Porter’s stunning playing of her, that dominates the closing third of the play. Quiet and understated, never overplayed, she gives a performance of white-hot fury. 'Life Sentence': London Pub Theatres (5 stars) A performance of startling intensity and grace. Every breath, every twitch of the superb Porter is imbued with humanity and humour. Delivers a political message like a punch in the gut.
