Hamlet

A great Hamlet almost realised


Henry VIII

A wonderful score and musicians, above all Bea Segura’s titanic act of shrivelling, make this a must-see.


House of Shades

There’ll be nothing more blazing or relevant on the London stage this year.


Jack Absolute Flies Again

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.


Much Ado About Nothing

The most convincing Much Ado for years


Much Ado About Nothing

This isn’t the most revelatory Much Ado, but the most consummate and complete for a while.


Patriots

Putin’s our monster too. A must-see.


Shake the City

A real play bursting out of its hour-plus length; with complex interaction, uncertain journeys, each character developing a crisis of isolation only resolved by sisterhood


The Corn is Green

There’s many reasons to see Williams’ finest play. To realise our potential it’s not enough to have dreams, but for someone to show us what those dreams could be.


The Merchant of Venice

A reading of Adrian Schiller’s Shylock as probing as other great productions of the past decade; and of Sophie Melville’s nearly-rounded, brittle Portia.


The Misfortune of the English

Pamela Carter’s schoolboys embody human connectedness, warmth, a final camaraderie before the chill of history. Unmissable.


The Paradis Files

Not so much an event as a concentration of Errollyn Wallen’s genius celebrating the life of blind composer Maria Theresia van Paradis, in Graeae’s world-class production


The Tempest

A joyous production, that without its gimmicky close, could certainly furnish a way in for many


two Palestinians go dogging

Packs a mighty question that can still knock you off balance.
