The Stage – ★★★★:

‘A staging of energy, intelligence and coherence, it’s likely to appeal both to younger as well as more established audience members.’
‘Hal Chambers’ fresh, contemporary and pacy staging of Shakespeare’s play of pageantry and patriotism takes a hard look at the ugliness of war and the futile pursuit of glory’

The Telegraph – ★★★★:

‘Moments of calm amid the visceral frenzy’
‘Finely achieved tug of war between conventionality and artistic daring’
‘Aaron Sidwell’s Harry is a man of the people, living it up amid strobes and pumping techno’
