Review of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s fine version of Julius Caesar (linked). While Angus Jackson gives us a conventional swords and sandals interpretation, the high quality of acting makes this essential viewing.
A detailed review of The Two Noble Kinsmen, by John Fletcher and William Shakespeare, in one of its very rare outings by the Royal Shakespeare Company. In spite of the intrinsic issues of the play itself (advertised as A Midsummer Night’s Dream Meets Fight Club) this is lively, inventive, and in the two lead roles, Paloman and Arcite (illustrated), very funny. One to catch at Stratford as it is so rarely seen.
