About me:

"Raw but intensely poignant production is full of empathy, anger, and humanity ... Jeryl Burgess plays grieving mother Emily with tearful, tightly-wound restraint" - The Stage on The Swallow; "the calming presence of Jeryl Burgess, who, in two roles transposed to the female gender, spoke Schiller's lines with rapt quietness." Michael Billington, The Guardian on The Robbers
