It's England really, isn't it? A climate without cloud and rain isn't honest.

In the ruins of a garden in rural England, in a house which was once home, one woman searches for seeds of hope.

Almeida [Off West End]

“Terrific... a work of deeply absorbing emotional richness and symphonic density... Hamilton is in glorious form.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Genius... it contemplates the political by cleaving firmly to the personal... Hamilton: transfixingly watchable... Remarkable.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Pays obvious homage to Chekhov, matching his sense of domesticity's mixture of stultifying banality and desperate strangeness.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Bartlett, Goold and the largely excellent cast smartly distil troubled England down to an elegiac microcosm... Thoughtful.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Fascinating, complex... enormously intriguing... Accurately pins down a peculiarly English confusion... Hamilton: breathtaking,”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Fine, nuanced Chekhovian exploration of Englishness, home, love and family.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Does not hammer home its metaphors... An intimate epic... A welcome satirical edge... Some remarkable breathtaking performances”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Refreshing... Hamilton: a piercing insistence... remarkable... Pulsating... Some slightly clumsy analogies about Brexit.”

Quentin Letts (Daily Mail)

“Magnificent...Hamilton dominates... Often very funny and powerfully dramatic... probing, sophisticated and elemental.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Hamilton’s Audrey is a wonderfully theatrical monster. Imperious, opinionated, selfish and offhand... Heartfelt and satisfying.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Hamilton is magnetic... It is hard to know whether the shine in her eyes is the glint of steel or the glimmer of tears.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Hamilton is stunningly good: brittle, brutal and achingly sad. And there are lovely, subtle performances all round. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“Leicester: magnificently wounded... Thallon, touchingly lost... Baggy... Out of the melodrama a kind of power emerges.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“A deeply affecting neo-Chekhovian drama.... Hamilton: outstanding... Quirky but rounded characters, all... superbly played.”

Michael Arditti (Express)
