★★★★Evening Standard

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

Sunday Mirror

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


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

★★★★The Stage

‘Lavish and uplifting - an incredibly handsome production’

The Guardian

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

The Daily Telegraph

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

Sunday Times

‘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’


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