With Baum’s direction they and we discover new thresholds, new anatomies
A theatrical arcady on our doorstep
Heartwarming, giddyingly vital yet clear with its own truth.
Here the shadows fall the more convincingly to join with those chimes at midnight in Henry IV/2.
An alert, dark-hued production. We have heard the chimes at midnight
A tedious brief tragedy? King John is fun… It’s been said.
A stylishly visceral production.
A blissfully alive production.
A deeply revolving production.
A joyful fleet production, a more-than-rough magic. What renders OFS unique is their fearlessness: a humour and zest to tear into buried Shakespeare, read the entrails.
We’re privileged to see this rarely-performed work moulded by OFS. A play for our times.
