Dinita Gohil (Viola); Kara Tointon (Olivia); Adrian Edmondson (Malvolio); Esh Alladi (Sebastian); Nicholas Bishop (Orsino); Vivien Parry (Maria); Giles Taylor (Antonio); Michael Cochrane (Sir Andrew Aguecheek); John Hodgkinson (Sir Toby Belch);

"Sumptuous romp is a festive season treat ... Heavens, this does look lovely. The RSC has gone all-out on a sumptuous design (three cheers for Simon Higlett). An unending delight; John Hodgkinson is a deliciously mercurial Sir Toby and Michael Cochrane’s Sir Andrew is cherishable." (Evening Standard ★★★★)

The Merry Wives of Windsor (Shakespeare's Globe)

Christopher Benjamin (Sir John Falstaff); Philip Bird (Dr. Caius); Sue Wallace (Mistress Quickly); Gregory Gudgeon (Nym); Michael Garner (George Page); Serena Evans (Meg Page);

"This revival of Christopher Luscombe’s lively 2008 production is the perfect addition to the Globe’s 2010 Kings and Rogues season and is arguably the most accessible to a contemporary audience." (The Stage)

The Tempest (Royal Shakespeare Company)

The Tempest (Royal Shakespeare Company)

Simon Russell Beale (Prospero); Joe Dixon (Caliban); Mark Quartley (Ariel); Jenny Rainsford (Miranda); Simon Trinder (Trinculo); Tony Jayawardena (Stephano); Oscar Pearce (Antonio); Joseph Mydell (Gonzalo);

"Simon Russell Beale’s return to the Royal Shakespeare Company after 20 years has been overshadowed by excitement about the production’s use of digital technology. While the effects are innovative, for me the kaleidoscopic visual spectacle pales besides the show’s human values and its moving affirmation of forgiveness." (The Guardian ★★★★)
