“Mike Bartlett’s audacious new comedy... Will Shakespeare scripting ‘The Thick of It’... Theatrical dynamite.”

Caroline McGinn (Time Out)

“Pigott-Smith rules the roost... giving the understated performance of his career.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Directs a wry, penetrating gaze at the monarchy, the limitations of its power and its place in our national identity.”

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

“Its themes appear more vital than ever, as Bartlett asks the stark question: who is in ultimate charge of our country?”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A meditation on the inviolable solitude of monarchy [using] a dense tissue of Shakespearean references.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Excellent production of Almeida Theatre’s hit triumphantly transfers to the West End”
