Andrew14th January

I loved the enthusiasm and talent of the young cast. The production was very innovative, with an infectious warmth.

XIUDI WANG14th January

Unfortunately it was the worst performance I’ve seen since I moved to London, and the name was also a misleading as that was not one of the Shakespeare’s.

Annabelle Parkhouse14th January

Really enjoyed it, ver different take, but well organised and well performed

Vladislava Vdovkina17th December

It’s a disgrace to play Shakespeare like that . Demonstrative . Vulgar , propaganda of homosexuality. The only one actor I admitted was a guy playing father . Very disappointed. Sorry

Annie Evans13th December

A lively, highly entertaining performance. Excellent production and cast - as good as any pantomime!
