"Director Brigitte Adela gives her cast the space to own their character’s stories, and I really enjoyed the way she set up the tone of each new scene through the deceptively simple mechanic of on-stage costume changes. This play is infused with humour and pain, making it all the more human and relatable."

"Director Brigitte Adela embodies the collaborative spirit when working through The Petal & The Orchid by Gabrielle Curtis and Clare Langford. This shines through even in the short time I sit in on some character development with actors Lydia Bakelmun and Marilii Saar – the three are working through the complex characters together. The play is about two strong and complex female characters – Brigitte devotes the time that the characters deserve to understand their backstories.
All this preparation for just a 15-minute play? Absolutely. The works demand no less respect and attention."
