‘Matthew Tennyson is mesmerising’

Sunday Times

‘Wilde would have loved this’

Sunday Times

‘Bretta Gerecke’s visually stunning staging’

WHATSONSTAGE

‘Matthew Tennyson is excellent in bringing the visceral poetry of Wilde’s words to life. His Salome has an intense fragility and steely inner-strength’

Whatsonstage

‘Striking singer Ilan Evans…the stage bristles with testosterone’

WhatsOnstage

‘Matthew Pidgeon’s leery, sardonic Herod and Suzanne Burden’s theatrical diva, Herodias…Gavin Fowler makes a strong impression as Iokanaan…good supporting cast including Assad Zaman, Andro Cowperthwaite and singer Evans – super glamorous.’

Whatsonstage

‘Owen Horsley’s inventive production…highlights Wilde’s bejewelled text’

Guardian

‘Matthew Tennyson gives a highly accomplished performance’

Guardian

‘Matthew Pidgeon is a leeringly villainous Herod, Suzanne Burden bristling with peacock feathers and bitterly humorous as his insulted wife, Herodias’
