FringeReview UK 2020

Afterplay

Miraculously-attuned. A wafer-thin but absolutely genuine slice of Chekhov. Do see it.


Amadeus

In the most spectacular production imaginable, Lucian Msamati’s supremely crafted lead sets off the quicksilver of his rival Adam Gillen.


An Inspector Calls

Still an outstanding production we might take for granted.


Coriolanus

A Coriolanus memorable for politics sinewed with personal forces: an active interrogation of democracy. And in Josie Rourke’s production Tom Hiddleston’s someone riven by intimations of his true self


Drawing the Line

Terrific, a harrowing education.


From Henry VI Part 3 to Romeo and Juliet

Join and revel – they’re not anywhere near ended.


Henry VI

The most effective condensation of the pith of the trilogy we’re likely to see.


Les Blancs

A superb realization of Lorraine Hansberry's unfinished masterpiece - a classic of Ibsenite proportions


Love Love Love

Epic eavesdropping casts that ultimate spell: reading ourselves by flashes of lightning.


Nora

Stef Smith’s brilliant riff on Ibsen’s original is revelatory


Phnom Penh – 40 Years On From The Khmer Rouge

An extraordinarily assured debut


Richard II

Do see this.


Rockets and Blue Lights

A paean to endurance, love, and wrenched freedoms.


Small Island

A reboot for the future, a passport for change.


The Madness of George III

This magnificent revival poses even more urgent questions. A twitch on the thread for all of us.


The Skin Game

Treat this as a wonderful premiere you’ve not had to stir for.


The Sound of Music

Phenomenal singing all round. A more than solid recommendation for that alone.


The Tin Drum

Nico Holonics’ blaze-through avatar is unlikely to be surpassed.


The Welkin

Already a contender for one of the best plays of 2020.


Wonderland

Outstanding. Surely the definitive study of the dignity of physical labour, and breaking of its amity.
