FringeReview UK 2020
Groundbreaking. The smallest producing theatre in the West End through lockdown has become the largest.
Miraculously-attuned. A wafer-thin but absolutely genuine slice of Chekhov. Do see it.
In the most spectacular production imaginable, Lucian Msamati’s supremely crafted lead sets off the quicksilver of his rival Adam Gillen.
Still an outstanding production we might take for granted.
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
Terrific, a harrowing education.
Join and revel – they’re not anywhere near ended.
The most effective condensation of the pith of the trilogy we’re likely to see.
A superb realization of Lorraine Hansberry's unfinished masterpiece - a classic of Ibsenite proportions
Epic eavesdropping casts that ultimate spell: reading ourselves by flashes of lightning.
Stef Smith’s brilliant riff on Ibsen’s original is revelatory
An extraordinarily assured debut
Do see this.
A paean to endurance, love, and wrenched freedoms.
A reboot for the future, a passport for change.
This magnificent revival poses even more urgent questions. A twitch on the thread for all of us.
Treat this as a wonderful premiere you’ve not had to stir for.
Phenomenal singing all round. A more than solid recommendation for that alone.
Nico Holonics’ blaze-through avatar is unlikely to be surpassed.
Already a contender for one of the best plays of 2020.
We’re privileged to see this rarely-performed work moulded by OFS. A play for our times.
Outstanding. Surely the definitive study of the dignity of physical labour, and breaking of its amity.
