An Inspector Calls

An Inspector Calls

★★★★☆    Worryingly compelling:

The revival of a much-garlanded take on J.B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls at the King’s is wonderfully staged, relevant and more than a little troubling.

Hedda Gabler

Hedda Gabler

★★★★☆  Modern:

Stark and tense, Ivo van Hove’s production of Hedda Gabler for the English National Theatre and touring to the Festival Theatre all week, is a thoroughly unnerving reading of Ibsen’s great play.

The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

★★☆☆☆ Unconvincing:
There is a confused and apologetic air to the touring production of The Importance of Being Earnest at the King’s that the efforts of some distinguished performers cannot overcome.
