Reviews

" Evening Standard" (Eve Best makes a superb return to acting at Shakespeare’s Globe, the theatre where she chose to launch her directorial career last summer.)

"Whats On Stage" (Jonathan Munby's production is a wonderfully clear and powerful interpretation of Shakespeare's late tragedy.)
