‘Catrin Aaron is captivating as the narrator. She holds the audience rapt as her story (or is it a confession?) unfolds…’

‘You can hear Shawn in Aaron’s performance, perhaps distinctive because of the richness of the language and the hypnotic rhythm of the prose, but she is utterly convincing as a character, flowing from low-key calm poise to rage, from confusion to self-justification to self-disgust whilst never feeling like this is a showcase of her actorly range.’

‘Director Alice Malin gives you nowhere to hide. There’s just a chair and an actor, and the words. Catrin Aaron as the traveller – also with no hiding place in the intense space of The Old Fire Station – leads you completely into the delirious mind of her character. ‘

‘It’s a remarkable performance.’

‘First published in 1991, The Fever sadly has as much to say to us as it ever had. Three Streets, and Catrin Aaron in particular, have given it a compelling new voice.’
