GODS ARE FALLEN AND ALL SAFETY GONE is an investigation into what happens when we discover that our parents are flawed human beings, and that at some point, sooner than we think, they are suddenly going to disappear from our lives.
Intimate and funny, this play presents a lifetime of conversations, condensed into one hour.


“It feels less like a traditional theatrical suspension of disbelief and more as if some kind of transference is taking place..”
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.

Full review


“A simple, complicated idea perfectly executed. Intelligent, emotionally intelligent, and somehow seeming to conjure a huge picture of the world from almost nothing; Gods Are Fallen and All Safety Gone is one of the most perfect pieces of theatre I have ever seen.”
Andrew Haydon, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, at the Almeida Festival.

“I suggest you take your mother along to see it. Walk out with her arm-in-arm, just like I did. It may be too early for drinks at that point, but it won’t be too late to talk.
For as long as it’s not too late to talk to your mother, “Gods are fallen” may not break your heart.”
Natalia Antonova, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, The Moscow News.

“At just under an hour, this piece is a masterclass in precision.”Belinda Dillon, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, Exeunt.

Full review

“Dimitrijevic’s sequence of four repeating mother-daughter conversations is perfectly simple in structure. But within its framework, she produces a superbly subtle analysis of the comedy and agony of this closest of family relationships.”
Joyce McMillan, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, The Scotsman.
