“Roost sees his job, apparently as prising the persona from the person; allowing a little light to shine in vulnerable crevices. This he does with great art. And artifice. In fact, he’s been meticulous in inventing a credible version of Bacon: creepy, slathering and salacious, sublime thinker given to profound insights on the nature of the human condition.” – Syke on Stage
