BWW Review: UNCLE VANYA, Theatre Royal Bath Photo BWW Review: UNCLE VANYA, Theatre Royal Bath
by Kerrie Nicholson - Jul 31, 2019

In his introduction to the play in the programme, David Hare remarks that: a?oeit's not just that Vanya soaks up a bewildering variety of interpretation... it's also, that, in the theatre, it's often hard to discern exactly what it's about.a?? This elusiveness characterises this specially commissioned production at Theatre Royal Bath very well: it's sumptuously staged with some brilliant performances, yet the changes of tone don't quite blend as well as they may.

BWW Review: HAMLET, Harold Pinter Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Jun 16, 2017

Following a sold-out Almeida run, Robert Icke's thoughtfully contemporary take on Shakespeare hits the West End, with its original cast mainly intact (Derbhle Crotty succeeds Juliet Stevenson as Gertrude on 4 July). The big draw, of course, is the superb Andrew Scott in the title role, but Icke's production is just as considered in every supporting part, resulting in a wonderfully rich experience.
