Reviews for SCARLET - Southwark Playhouse 2015
An extraordinary full length play which tackles an upsetting subject with respect, empathy and humour. It is an exciting debut from Sam H. Freeman, and bodes great things for this highly perceptive writer. ... This is an excellent collaborative production but the real strength is in the writing. The dialogue is sharp, insightful and natural. It veers from making you feel a sick sense of dread to a full-on belly laugh in a second.' - Female Arts
'Sam H. Freeman's play does a rare thing - it captures the messy emotional battlefield of young lives played out on social media. The idea that women who express their sexuality are punished for it, or that misogyny is invariably a product of male sexual anxiety, are not new observations, but Freeman refreshes them with lashings of lively, spikey wit' - Metro
'Sam H. Freeman’s script reads with an authenticity that pops with realism, even with the hypertheatrical conceit of four characters playing different aspects of the same woman. The work is brutal, but utterly watchable. [Scarlet is] one of the most intriguing, watchable, and thought provoking characters currently playing in London'. - British Theatre
'Scarlet, the first full-length play by Samuel H Freeman, is a sharply-focussed and provocative examination of the causes and consequences of sexual abuse. [The play] moves effortlessly between humour and suspense'. - Public Reviews
'The play is essentially a first-person monologue, but Freeman has come up with the brilliant conceit of casting four actresses to play Scarlet simultaneously. It's a thrilling and exceptionally well constructed framework, exploited to the full.' - Broadway World
