“Under is a beautifully crafted, skilfully presented piece of theatre... sensitive, nuanced, delicate, often reaching up to the poetic.”
Tim Stevenson, Theatreview
May was an athlete and an artist, ambitious, headstrong, brilliant, beautiful – and now she has disappeared. The Man who loved her does nothing but try to find her again, but as he tells and retells their story he starts to learn that ‘remembering is a game for two players’.
An original solo show featuring veteran performer Chris Green, Under is a poetic monologue about memory and the enduring power of love.

"Tse’s words are silver threads on storm clouds as she stitches a delicate mix of light and dark of his journey, choosing to change the direction when tears are suddenly close to falling or laughter’s still hanging hanging off smiles. This combined with Cain’s direction that weaves together the cracks in Green’s composure, and question his reality." - Courtney Rose Brown, Art Murmurs
"Tse’s script is beyond beautiful. It is intelligent, fierce, and compassionate. Green is a natural performer who clearly shares a strong connection with the work. His micro-expressions and gestures are a joy to watch. Cain’s direction demonstrates a great understanding of the script – without fail, each decision he has made complements its ebbs and flows, its highs and lows, and its power." - Madelaine Empson, Regional News
