Imogen Doel as Charlotte Corday

'The spirited ensemble certainly gives it their all, and Britton plays the Marquis with relish'
Evening Standard  

'Notable performances from Arsher Ali as the disfigured, febrile Marat, Jasper Britton as a poised, calculating de Sade and the diminutive Lisa Hammond as a kinky emcee'
Daily Telegraph  

'Anthony Neilson's most startling innovation is to cast Lisa Hammond... wickedly funny'
Stage  

'A fabulously rude, energetic, theatrical extravaganza with great singing'
Stage  

'Marat/Sade continues to sharply divide opinion'
Stratford Observer  

'There is good work from Christopher Ettridge as the control-freakish asylum boss and Imogen Doel as the murderous Corday'
Guardian  

'This is an imaginative and colourful production'
Birmingham Mail  

'The North African lilt of Khyam Allami's music and the costuming bring a smack of the Arab Spring to Marat's proselytising for revolution'
Independent  

'There are some genuinely outstanding elements to the production. The use of projection in the final sequence of the first act is brilliant and truly disturbing and some of the depictions of torture are suitably wince-inducing'
Whatsonstage.com 

'Enormous praise must go to the cast all of whom fully commit to the physicality and power of their characters. Central to the production is the audacious portrayal of Marquis de Sade by Jasper Britton. A mesmerising and ever-changing creation, he is always engaging and believable'
