✭✭✭✭ "While it may be an Icelandic play, the messages are universal and presented very well here. It’s well worth a trip to West London to see this!"
"Moments is well written, the acting is excellent (particularly Aron Trausti and Siggi Holm) and it is a thoughtful and sensitive production (Sindri Swan, Maya Lindh) that does not shy away from challenging topics."
✭✭✭✭✭ "The performances are taut and quite riveting and the beautifully sad story reduced me to tears. Strongly recommended."

After a tragic loss, Andri has withdrawn from society and seemingly given up on life. We watch as Andri struggles with ghosts from the past, as well as his own existence and relationships. The play addresses the subject of family, loss and forgiveness with brutal honesty, revealing the imperfections and raw vulnerability of the human mind and being.
