"I Write What I See serves to remind audiences of Stead’s vibrant novelistic art, the power and style of her characters and dialogue.
[Olivia] Brown is very good at manifesting the suppressed intensity at the heart of Stead’s character… and her reading from The Man Who Loved Children is highly charged with the emotion of the text"

Martin Ball, The Age October 18th, 2010

"If Darryl Emmerson’s play does nothing more than remind us just how radical a writer Christina Stead was, and inspire us to read more of, and more widely from, her body of powerful and feminised work, then it will have served a purpose… Emmerson is a skilled poet and lyricist, and his words sing"
Chris Boyd, Herald Sun, October 19th, 2010
