Mark Brown, Scotland on Sunday
The performances of the superb international cast are so convincing, the collectively devised script so poetic and sharp. . .director Ben Harrison integrates top class live and recorded music, moving and still images and fantastic set designs into a truly high-flying production.
Mark Fisher, The Sunday Times
As politically pertinent as it is thrilling, and one more highlight in Grid Iron’s glittering 10-year career. . .an imaginative flight, rich in detail and deep in philosophical thought. It is a soaraway success.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
One of the chief joys is that you’re not always sure what you are seeing is part of the show or just real life. This melting of reality into absurdity is beautifully done. . .its success can be measured by the fact that although you actually never depart the airport you feel as if you’ve been somewhere exotic and special.
Keith Bruce, The Herald
In a class of its own for site-specific work, the technical execution of Roam is astonishing. . .There is not an aspect of the air travel experience that is not used in the service of director Ben Harrison’s narrative. . .Roam is a sensational experience.
Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman
a lyrical, poetic, erotic and sometimes comic meditation on the fate of a group of ordinary travellers. . .the superb quality of the performances and of the music. . .the sharpness with which this show identifies the airport as one of the key points where post-modern issues of identity, entitlement and belonging are played out- matched by Grid Iron’s sheer practical genius in weaving its drama through the structures and spaces of a working airport- makes this vital and important 21st-century theatre, which should perhaps be re-enacted in every international airport on earth.
