“One of the most astonishing, gripping and uncompromising pieces of theatre you're likely to see this year. ”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Memorable... In a thrillingly bold move, Mitchell leaves her almost alone and virtually wordless... König, superb. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Graceful, hypnotic... Konig’s Ophelia says very little, but her epic, doomed struggle is etched upon her face. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Mitchell’s spotlight on Ophelia is impressively boring but also strangely gripping. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“Laboured...and far-flung... this Ophelia does in her own meek, put-upon way haunt us and ring poignantly true. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Takes the real ghost at the heart of Hamlet and briefly breathes life back into her before she slips beneath the water. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)
