★★★★ “David Cameron should rush to see this politically charged Richard II … Clear, pacy and rich in sharply delineated performances” — Daily Telegraph

★★★★ “Tim Delap and Hermione Gulliford’s excellent performances are complimented by a very solid supporting cast, and an inventive set that renders Westminster as a tragic soap opera” — British Theatre

★★★★ “An exciting, modern-day take on Shakespeare’s political drama” — Everything Theatre

“A sharp, slick, modern-dress staging that mixes the concerns of Shakespeare’s play with the trappings of contemporary power” — Financial Times

“Richard II finds a new resonance … cleanly focused” — The Stage

“An extraordinary achievement … an impeccable cast … an incisive comment on the party politics of the very present and a sumptuous feast, dripping in history” — HISKIND

“A lucid production in which the action is easy to follow … Hermione Gulliford is fantastic, nimbly dancing through Shakespeare’s verse as a snarling, sarcastic political animal” — Time Out
