    Reviews of the 2005 production of Throwing Stones

    Throwing Stones - 'What's in your family album' a revised version of the play, by Christopher John Ball and Dean Sipling“Mid-life male photographer meets young, nubile female student-cum-artistic muse - so far it’s old hat. But photographer turned playwright Christopher John Ball and co-writer Dean Sipling, whose background is film and television, bring the pairing into a thoroughly contemporary world of intercepted emails, sinister insinuation and sharp retorts. Their ‘guilty until proved innocent’ plot ... is thoroughly watchable and believable - perhaps as a result of Ball’s professional insights and DS Dom Lucas’ services as police advisor to the production.” Barbara Lewis – The Stage

    “Throwing Stones has just opened at the Greenwich Playhouse and it enters the dark and perverse world of child pornography in a studied and highly creative way. Indeed, it comes close to being a totally absorbing evaluation of what some might believe is true art while others might cringe in horror at the sight of what they see is an indecent image.....Anton Krause’s direction is impeccable; Helen Chadney, Christopher Vian-Smith, Shaun Stone and Geraldine Garner generate performances which are outstanding while Laura Murphy exudes sex from every pore.” Roy Atterbury – Bexley Times

    "This is fringe theatre at its best, experimental, vaguely existential" - Clifford Thurlow - The New Nude Magazine.

    "The writers... bravely tackle this controversial subject to produce a challenging and thought-provoking modern drama." - Bromley Times
