FringeReview UK 2022
Howard Brenton touching eighty is at the height of his powers. Tom Littler has assembled a pitch-perfect cast, reuniting two from his outstanding All’s Well. This too.
An object lesson in comic timing; a steep cut above the ‘real’ whodunnits we’re likely to see this year or next.
Immersive, outstanding, unrepeatable and unimaginable anywhere else
What Richard Bean and Oliver Chris manage is homage, both to Sheridan’s shade, his early bawdy, and despite anything a memorial to those who laughed at themselves to death. A must-see.
A gem of a production, Taylor McClaine a soaring talent to watch.
Highlights the truth of its bleak laughter. Humane Strindberg. Now there’s a thing.
