“Short, sharp and brave theatre” (Close Up Culture☆☆☆☆) “a deeply moving and touching retelling whose importance is unquestionable [that] definitely will get under your skin!” (A Younger Theatre) “Playwright Yonatan Calderon has wrought a short play of shocking beauty” (Jewish Renaissance☆☆☆☆) “The play encourages understanding and compassion and avoids melodrama” (British Theatre Guide) “Under The Skin is full of ‘small moments’ that are actually quite telling.” (Breaking the Fourth Wall☆☆☆☆) “The play [...] digs deep into the human psyche to explore what war and what power does to people and what love can do” (London Calling) “lyrical”, “thought-provoking play” (Plays to See☆☆☆) “In the wrong hands, a story such as Under The Skin could be incendiary”, “Calderon makes a powerful case for really interrogating what we mean by morality, how we look at the past and how we let it shape us now. Bold fringe work.” (Ian Foster) “The moral and ethical quandaries of this piece will stay with me for a long time” (FringeReview, Brighton Fringe Festival) “Ten shows you have to see at Camden Fringe” (Timeout London)
