Theatre Reviews:

“…the outstanding performance of Brant Eustice as Hamlet. His embodiment of the tragedy-fraught Prince of Denmark is one of consummate understanding and he delivers both glorious lunacy and heart rending pathos – with every nuance inbetween.” – (Hamlet) The Advertiser

“Michael [the character] gives the impression that he is detached and disinterested, but swings from an outward veneer of calm and reason to what he self-describes as a Neanderthal. Eustice traverses this range with ease, switching quickly from one aspect of Michael’s persona to another, one moment passing rum and cigars, the next discussing his youthful leadership of a gang. He conveys Michael’s multifaceted personality superbly in a rich performance.” – (God of Carnage) Glam Adelaide

“Brant Eustice is superb and brings a staggering complexity to John, from swaggering bravado to fetal curl.” – (Oleanna) The Advertiser
