‘Unwittingly influenced, perhaps, by traditional nuns’ habits, the trend has been for monochromatic productions of Dialogues with a minimalist austerity. In essence, Olivier Py’s marvelous 2013 staging follows suit, but his is by far the most imaginative and effective example of that approach.’ – Christopher Dingle
