Barbican [Off West End]

“Rich, absorbing and pulsing with life, Gregory Doran’s RSC productions of this pair of Shakespearean dramas are a triumphant ach”

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

“Antony Sher’s magnificent Falstaff is at the heart of this beautifully detailed production”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“With a magnificent shock of bouncy grey hair, Antony Sher slowly waddles his substantially padded frame around the RSC’s product”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Surely a little pomp and pageantry here wouldn’t have gone amiss?”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A charmless Falstaff and two blunt young blades in mediocre Shakespeare double bill”
