Anon Look About You

Exceptional and vibrant, the company prove it’s one to revive.


As You Like It

A heartwarming revival. Jack Laskey, Bettrys Jones and Nadia Nadarajah have made a space for this As You Like It well beyond its initial moment last year.


Creditors

We’re unlikely to see a better production of this still rarely-performed disturber of ourselves.


Edward I

Could this be staged any more convincingly? Superb.


Edward II

A flinty lesson, not to be missed.


George A Greene, The Pinner of Wakefield

We now know more of Greene than upstart crows


Henry IV Part 1 or Hotspur

A soaring remix of how the play settles a succession on congealed blood.


Henry IV Part 2 or Falstaff

The triumph of this newly-energized production is bringing the darker Falstaff to a diverse audience


Henry V

The enormous energy Sarah Amankwah brings proclaims greatness in the making


Mary Stuart

It must be seen


Mary Stuart

Again, it must be seen


Miss Julie

It’s unlikely we’ll get a cleaner version, or a more absorbing production any time soon


Peter Gynt

In McArdle’s irresistible performance you’re not likely to see a finer Gynt.


Richard II

A savage anointing, a revelatory reading.


Richard II

A searingly precise essay on the corruption of entitlement.


Rosmersholm

They compel attention, they demand we follow every sigh


Tartuffe

Prepare to be Tartuffed.


The Dismissal of the Greek Envoys and The Laments

In nearly every way an outstanding pair of productions.


The Flies

There’s nothing like the Exchange’s approach: their bi-lingual virtuosity burns questions.


The Lady From the Sea

A groundbreaking production. Even outside its unique terms it’s outstanding.


The Malcontent

Outstanding theatre.


The Merchant of Venice

A feminist take on a Shakespeare classic


The Merry Wives of Windsor

The most cogent, most fun at the Globe this year.


The Taming of The Shrew

Highlight how good the play is just where we’re not looking for it


The Winter’s Tale

One of the finest LLT productions I can remember


Three Sisters

This absorbing production keeps growing in the mind, like to take root.


Wit and Science

They render a faint scroll alive with wit
