Reviews for the production at the Swan Theatre:

★★★★ 'The RSC at its best: fine actors, swimming in great words and ideas'

★★★★ 'Bracing and radical...in Gregory Doran's powerfully involving production, the piece brings the Reformation and its ideological conflicts stingingly alive'
Independent

★★★★  'Gregory Doran's fine production'
Sunday Times

'Two hugely impressive performances... Oliver Ford Davies makes a memorably troubled Andrewes...Stephen Boxer captures all the fire and anger of the pathfinding Tyndale'

Financial Times
