“….a new angle on human distress in the UK premiere of Ping by the young Portuguese composer, Vasco Mendonça. Michael McCarthy’s production has actor Nia Roberts separated by a gauze from her alter ego, the soprano Helen-Jane Howells. They share Beckett’s text like the shifting light of an unstable psyche: both give superb performances, complemented by an electronic score and a stuttering monochrome video projection by Sandro Aguilar. Just two more shows: be sure to be there. “
