Naima Swaleh in THE GLASS WILL SHATTER Reviews

★★★★ - Naima Swaleh is captivating as Amina, performing with a reassuring sense of purpose onstage, remaining in control of all scenes, not by grasping for status, but by retaining a sense of stoic self-confidence.

Swaleh’s performance is definitely scene stealing, with me finding myself constantly drawn to her, even in moments where she is not speaking. - A Younger Theatre 

★★★★ - Eno and Swaleh are both excellent, particularly in the play’s stiller moments. Arden has a harder job and the overblown emotion of some of her scenes jar with the rest of the production - The Stage 


★★★★ As Amina, Naima Swaleh is excellent, bringing the perfect teenage cockiness to her role. She struts and she stares, and it’s easy to see how she exasperates her teacher. - The Reviews Hub 

★★★★ The Glass Will Shatter makes its point very strongly but promises more drama than it actually delivers.- The British Theatre Guide


★★★★ While Naima Swaleh spikes with sharpness and unpredictability as Amina, bringing an energy to this character that clashes so convincingly with Arden’s Rebecca. - View From The Outside

★★★★ - "Drama exercises such raw emotional power that it’s impossible to get through it without crying" - The Independent 

★★★★ - "This little-told story of the young people rescued from concentration camps and sent to Britain is poignant and hopeful" - The Guardian

★★★★ - "They are played with brilliance by a bunch of up-and-coming young actors,such as Marek Wrobelwski" - Radio Times
