"Tom Rackham's music is a total success... that lends the action atmosphere, in an ingenious manner that comforts or offers hope, and never obtrudes of interferes. It showed a marked empathy with the unremitting angsts of the pessimistic text."

Behind The Arras (4.5 stars)


"A joyous staging... a complex, rich piece of art."

The Stage (4 stars)


"A desolate, spellbinding finish."

The Guardian


"Vivid, slick and filled with detail"

StageTalk Magazine


"Both epic and domestic in scope. A great sense of energy and exuberance on stage."

Weekend Notes


"Shimmeringly energetic."



"A huge, bold, thought-provoking event."
