The God Box – A Daughter’s Story (The God Box Project)

By | Published on Saturday 9 August 2014

In this one woman show about coming to terms with the death of a parent, and the secrets you discover after they’re gone, Mary Lou Quinlan tells her sad story with aplomb and affection. The story is compelling and emotionally involving, making the audience really want to learn more about her and her family. Quinlan narrates her early years; her feelings about her mother and the events leading up to her death with warmth and passion. The performance was excellently crafted and delivered, although some of the sound effects seemed to clash with the moments on stage. ‘The God Box’ is a sweet, touching and heart-rending show, which will make you want to call your mother afterwards.

Assembly Roxy, until 25 Aug.
