MEDIA REVIEWS
"'...a winner...unnervingly in tune with modern feeling.'."
-The Times
"'...one of the most important plays in the new feminist theatre of hysteria. Anna Furse draws on the history of phychiatry to produce innovative performance that is also a critique of the psychoanalytic appropriation of women. Augustine is set in the Paris clinic of Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot. From 1882 to the year of his death in 1893, Charcot was the impresario of a group of 'hysterical' women who become known, as stars, queens, and divas.'."
-From Elaine Showalter's introduction
"'Anna Furse presents a fascinating piece of theatre in which she uses a stylised form to explore factual content.'."
-Time Out (London)
