‘An unending delight; John Hodgkinson is a deliciously mercurial Sir Toby and Michael Cochrane’s Sir Andrew is cherishable’

Evening Standard

‘Lavish designs by Simon Higlett…Nigel Hess’s Victorian-influenced score is the perfect accompaniment’

Sunday Mirror


‘Dinita Gohil, ‘a luminous Viola’; Beruce Khan, ‘excellent as Feste’



‘Lavish and uplifting - an incredibly handsome production’

The Stage

‘The designs, ranging from railway stations to statuary-filled gardens, are a delight’

The Guardian

‘Adrian Edmondson is fantastic as Malvolio. He possesses a hypnotic quality of unpredictability’

The Daily Telegraph

‘Director Christopher Luscombe’s undisputed comic skills are here combined with a wistful note that delicately explores the play’s ambiguities. Simon Higlett’s sumptuous settings place the action in 1890s London, the decade of decadence and aesthetics’

Sunday Times

‘The whole ensemble is perfect: Vivien Parry gives us Maria as a vindictive virago…Sarah Twomey, Verity Kirk and Sally Cheng are lovely maids’
