CRITICAL PRAISE FOR "IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME"

Sue Arnold OBSERVER

Brilliantly adapted by Michael Butt.  By giving us layers of sound, superimposing new voices over old conversations, fading dialogue in and out, mixing past and present, director John Taylor gives Proust the richness, the texture, the subtlety and variety of a classic bouillabaisse. 

 

Elisabeth Mahoney GUARDIAN

What the adaptation conjured so richly was the Proustian sense of time as liquid, with memory as ripples.  This adapation is delectable and memorable.

 

Nicholas Lezard INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

The adaptor Michael Butt and the director John Taylor have the spirit of the book.  (This is) the kind of radio you shoo people out of the room for.” 

 

John Tusa former MD  WORLD SERVICE and BARBICAN

A wonderful listen and a quite marvellous production

 

Maria Delgado BROADCASTER AND THEATRE CRITIC

An incredibly animated world…the way that sound is interwoven through past and present becomes magical.  The editing is masterful. (And) it’s a great cast. The actors are superb.

 

Donald William Thackeray

Hauntingly beautiful. A masterpiece.

Kevin Jackson WRITER & CRITIC

A really wonderful recreation of the movements of the mind.

 

Marcy Kahan RADIO & TV Dramatist

Everyone I speak to agrees with me that it’s clear, bold, funny, terrifically performed and a marvel of radio.
