Critic reviews

The play is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare, but also an engaging and thought-provoking variation

· The Upcoming

80s-set Shakespeare is an unexpected nostalgia trip

· The Telegraph

A bold concept's potential is not fully realised in too hasty an execution

· Broadway World

Feels fresh and funny

· Theatre Weekly

Stripped-back, teen-oriented version

· The Guardian
