“An engaging staging that will appeal to horror film fans.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Findlay’s take, starring an earthy Christopher Eccleston, is clear, gripping and, above all, poundingly urgent.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Unrelentingly staccato, emphatic, and with little variety of pace... Suffers from one-note, race-the-clock vigour.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Eccleston: a robust account of a man of action... his speaking of the verse lacks irony or light and shade.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Eccleston: impressively conveys the horrible clash between the bluff, no-nonsense, northern-accented soldier and the inner man.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Ruthlessly cut, modish, tricky and eccentric... At times, though, this feels like Macbeth the comedy... Strands good actors. ”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Oh, how I wanted it to be good... But the passion in this show rarely bubbles.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“Lamentable... This is the cursed hour of the self-regarding, look-at-me Macbeth.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Fizzes with ideas but is a huge challenge... a combination of black-and-white horror film utilitarian tragedy and child’s play.”

Kate Kellaway (Observer)
