Text about the play





Nice things that people have said about I Am A Camera

Chaz Doyle

Well, South London Theatre's production of I Am A Camera is certainly a delicious gin with a touch of peppermint! The wonderful Alex Watts gives us one of his most nuanced and emotive performances to date and newcomer Lucie Sherwood is stonking as the straight play Sally Bowles. Tom Watts and Anna Rubincam are terrific as they deal with their Jewish identities at either end of the spectrum as Nazi violence escalates in 30's Berlin. Mark Vinson and Caroline Beckett both give expertly delivered performances as the brash American and the stuck-up English mother, but I must say that Margaret Glenn's Fraulein Schneider stole the first half of the play for me. If only all landladies were so lovely. Funny, racey, full of pathos and tragedy, definitely not a show to miss.

Clive Manning

I am a Camera was simply superb. Whole cast were exemplary and what an excellent, well written, nuanced play. Congratulations to Lisa and all the cast and crew. Well worth seeing.

Bryon Fear

I Am A Camera is not shit ... go see! And our newcomer playing Sally Bowles is fabulous! … Like all great theatre, it immerses you in another place and time, with fascinating and beautifully portrayed characters.

Owen Chidlaw

I Am A Camera last night was absolutely brilliant! Interesting and extremely well developed characters all round, set and actors dressed wonderfully and the performance seemed nigh on flawless. 5 star show. Made me want to get back on the SLT stage so much!

Naomi Liddle

Well done everyone involved in I Am A Camera - champagne fuelled and decadent and beautifully performed and directed. Sorry I didn't hang around for a drink, will join you for a gin and peppermint later in the week. Can't resist#‎tinywhitesofa‬

Hazel Hindle

So enjoyed the play and Sally was magnificent and so too were the dresses. Soo elegant. My friends from the Dulwch art group really enjoyed the play and were enthralled from beginning to end ☺️

Suzy Jacobsen

Yes Lisa Thomas superb from all angles! I came to IAAC with basic knowledge of key characters but no inkling of their relationships and joint histories so I was totally engaged the whole way...working my little brain and enjoying it all hugely! Casting was right on the button and oh my *dribble* at Chris ' s suitcase -a thing of exquisite beauty!! and the costumes!! ( men and womens) *faints away* Plus of course the magnificent Margaret Glenn brought deep joy and worthy material for next months' Ample Bosom Club's newsletter. Have a stonking final night all!!xxxx

Matthew Moore

Extremely unshit. Many congratulations to all involved...

Charlotte Benstead

Great use of the space, seamless scene changes that actually added to the narrative and a great cast - well done everyone in iaac. Everyone aced it but - really, is there anything that Tom Watts can't do ? What a season he is having ! Makes you sick (;-) xxxx
