Weyni Mengesha’s production certainly shows her to be one of the more versatile directors in Toronto at the moment...’The Small Room at the Top of the Stairs’ is a little gem.

The Small Room at the Top of the Stairs is a mini masterpiece...

Astonishingly good production...Mengesha has given the play a hypnotic L-shaped staging... There have been some great things in the Toronto theatre recently, but this is the best, the very best.
