Reviews Trickle In for Henry IV

This person loved the play and Tom:

"Good production with excellent performances from Ben Mansfield (Hotspur) and Tom Mison (Prince Hal), good from the rest of the cast although I thought Phillip Voss a little camp as Worcester and Katie Lightfoot not really with it as Hotspur's wife (but it's not much of a part, just a cipher for Hotspur's priorities). David Yelland as the king started off poorly but came on well. Good set well lit. It's the first serious Shakespeare I've seen in a while and it's re-whetted my appetite for the form.

Part of the summer Peter Hall Company season of rep plays and is on again and again over the next few weeks. Well worth seeing if you can get to the Theatre Royal Bath."

This one was accompanied by the fantastic photo above.

"All in all it was a thoroughly polished performance, enlivened by technically and artistically brilliant stage design, which kept up the pace with seamless scene changes."
