Samantha Oxborough as Maurya both sang and acted her role consummately--the outstanding performance of the evening ..... Oxborough is perfect for this role--quality of evenness of tone, good diction and dynamic range ............... the closing scene is riveting

Richard S, 5 years ago

But the drama pivots on their mother Maurya sung by Samantha Oxborough. An artist in her early twenties who managed not only to embody a woman with a lifetime's harsh experience but whose voice had a core of savage intensity and a glow that her defiant monologues convinced you that you were hearing a masterpiece.
