'FUSES AN INTELLIGENT, INTERROGATIVE APPROACH TO TEXT WITH A STRONG PHYSICAL SENSIBILITY, A FOCUS ON
THE BODY...AN INTELLIGENT, ASSURED AND KINETIC TAKE ON SHAKESPEARE'

THE STAGE ★★★★


'IT’S A VIBRANT, KINETIC PRODUCTION THAT MANAGES TO CRAM ITS LARGE (AND IMPRESSIVELY DIVERSE) CAST
INTO THE COMPACT SPACE OF THE NEW DIORAMA THEATRE WITHOUT FEELING CLUTTERED, AND GIVING US A RICHARD THAT FEELS UTTERLY CONTEMPORARY WITHOUT DISCARDING ANY OF THOSE THINGS THAT MAKE IT SUCH A CLASSIC.'

EXEUNT ★★★★


'PROPULSIVE AND HIGHLY PHYSICAL...A GALVANISING CLARITY AND IMMEDIACY...ILLUMINATED BY FLASHES OF
INTELLIGENCE AND INVENTION.'

THE TIMES

'HAS MANY OF THE STRENGTHS THAT HAVE BECOME ASSOCIATED WITH THE OUTFIT ... SPINE-TINGLING'
