Reviews for the production at the Swan Theatre:

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

★★★★ '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'

'Oliver Ford Davies is excellent as Andrewes, weighing his words and ideas scrupulously yet also capable of passion when contending with Stephen Boxer's Tyndale, a man driven by inner fire'
Financial Times
