NEW ROYAL SHAKESPEARE COMPANY PLAY WRITTEN ON THE HEART COMES TO WEST END
| By London Theatre Direct
Already a critically acclaimed hit at the RSC's Swan Theatre in Stratford, David Edgar's passionate epic is about the writing of the English language-defining King James Bible. Gregory Doran directs Written on The Heart from 19 April to 21 July at the Duchess Theatre .
Reviews for the production at the Swan Theatre:
★★★★ 'The RSC at its best: fine actors, swimming in great words and ideas'
★★★★ 'A very impressive piece of work'
★★★★ 'Bracing and radical...in Gregory Doran's powerfully involving production, the piece brings the Reformation and its ideological conflicts stingingly alive'
★★★★ 'Gregory Doran's fine production'
'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'
'Gregory Doran's superb production…highly enjoyable'
