Reviews

Philip P, 2 years ago

What makes TROY a unique show is a brilliant incorporation of music and song into the language of the play. With original composition by David Denyer, each actor-musician is armed with an instrument which they use for deadly poignancy. A violin ominous in tone is caressed like a child. A growling cello, when laid down, becomes a corpse. And a taunting accordion transforms into a set of gasping lungs. The fusion of these three instruments oscillates between melancholic cries in unison, deafening crescendos and intimate softness.

Charles P, 3 years ago

Throughout, David Denyer’s musical score instils a somatic dread. Uncanny textures, resembling human groans or whispers, and dissonant tones create a ghastly melody to the rhythm of Cabal’s text.
