A Letter to a Friend in Gaza

Amos Gitai’s curating hope from the ruins, impelling the audience to construct a narrative.

Ali and Dahlia

A phenomenally well-written first play


Did I say sucker-punch? It’s what the Orange Tree do every time.

Blood Wedding

In several ways, this is about as good as it gets.


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

Don’t Dress for Dinner

For a farce there’s only one spot of monotony. That’s how uniformly outstanding this is.


Europe’s border challenges have rarely been realized with this power.

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

My Brilliant Friend Parts One and Two

Cusack and McCormack give the performances of their lives

Peter Gynt

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


They compel attention, they demand we follow every sigh

Sadness and Joy in the Life of Giraffes

Rodrigues is a dramatist we need to see far more of.


Prepare to be Tartuffed.

The Dismissal of the Greek Envoys and The Laments

In nearly every way an outstanding pair of productions.

The Doctor

A triumph for all concerned. Juliet Stevenson even gains in stature. Icke’s last production could hardly go better than this.

The Father

Florian Zeller's masterpiece, in a production and central performance that would do it justice anywhere.

The Flies

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

The Hunt

An outstandingly theatrical re-visioning of a film

The Lady From the Sea

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

The Lehman Trilogy

Almost stupefying, but outstanding.

The Son

An explosively powerful play

Three Sisters

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


A really worthwhile production with a few missed opportunities

Youth Without God

We’re launched into a necessary world
