National Theatre

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.

Jane Eyre

Jane Eyre

★★★★☆ Pure theatre:
Resolutely theatrical and visually arresting, the version of Jane Eyre at the Festival Theatre retains the flavour of that well-loved book while succeeding admirably on its own terms.

My Country – A Work in Progress

My Country – A Work in Progress

★☆☆☆☆ Limp:
My Country – A Work In Progress, the National Theatre of Great Britain’s touring response to the Brexit vote, may very well have its heart in the right place.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

✭✭✭✭✩ Spectacular:
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, the UK National Theatre’s celebrated, award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon’s novel, is back at the Festival Theatre until Saturday, and remains a beautifully staged, complex piece.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time

✭✭✭✭✭ Perfect equation:
Visually slick and intellectually enthralling, the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, captures your imagination and simply doesn’t let got. Not during the show, and not afterwards.

Review – War Horse

Review – War Horse

Ambitious in scope and able to deliver on every level, War Horse – at the Festival theatre for a sold-out run until 15 February – is a spectacular and emotional ride.
