“The Watchers is a spooky, witty, disturbing treat – with aesthetic elements reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange, Requiem For A Dream, and early Woody Allen films – but with a style and atmosphere all of its own.” Xaque Gruber, The Huffington Post

John has broken into the world of Direction with the début for OutFox Productions, a new adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening at the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre.
Reviews are allready staring to come in and John all ready has some nice notices for his role on the show.
One Stop Arts: 4 Stars – **** – “Sexual education has always been a tricky subject but, from the confident new Outfox Productions, Spring Awakeningshows how damaging it can be to not educate our children enough. This is a dark and impressive production adapted by director John Fricker from Frank Wedekind’s 1891 original… John Fricker’s direction keeps things moving enough to include all three sides of the Jack Studio’s auditorium with each scene seamlessly overlapping the next.”
The Stage said: “In bypassing the temptation of a rousing soundtrack, director John Fricker’s adaptation focuses on Wedekind’s uncompromising writing and depiction of the conflict between teenage sexual desire and 19th-century adult morality. Stripped of singing and dancing, the play’s portrayal of child abuse, rape and suicide feels more immediate and consequently more unsettling – a reminder of what inspired censors to frequently ban its performance over the years… Fricker’s direction is strong and fluid”
British Theatre Guide: ”a very creditable directorial debut from actor John Fricker, and a first production to be proud of for OutFox Productions. It will be interesting to see what comes next.”
A Younger Thetare: “this is an enjoyable and often powerful production”
