Remarkable performances from Alison Crookendale as Jennifer and Talise Trevigne as June; not only do they resemble twins, but their body language is eerily suggestive of mutual identification as well as mutual mistrust. Devon Harrison is priceless as Mark, Jennifer's tongue-tied pen pal; the scenes in Broadmoor are painfully funny. Martin Constantine's production is assured - an unequivocal hit.
THE GUARDIAN ****
Martin Constantine's production skilfully shows the twins' imagined world closing in around them; their logical responses are magically brought to life by Alison Crookendale and Talise Trevigne. The Silent Twins moves and disturbs.
