I really enjoyed show. Also it was amusing how they just demonstrated the whole play with the male characters! It made me laugh from time to time! Worths to see.

She certainly is. Did you see their musical at Edinburgh last year? Beautiful. This production is a remarkable piece of theatre and a testament to the power to good direction and acting. You know what's amazing about this company? They are a success story of the Fringe, developing everything from nothing. What's brilliant is that even at this stage and for the future they will not need anything else because they have that amazing foundation. The new Brook company but better - just tell everybody.

Truly a wonderful performance from a wonderful ensemble. The execution of the fight scenes was a delight to watch. I have followed this company, Action to the Word for a couple of years since seeing their production of Titus Andronicus at the fringe in Edinburgh. The artistic direction is an inspiration and I truly believe that Alexandra Spencer-Jones is a woman to watch.

Superb show. The music and props were well chosen, the key players carried enough of a sense of menace to make you believe in them, and the dance routines, though they could have been highly extraneous given the story, only added to the effect - especially the early fight scene. Expertly executed. The camp male and knowingly silly female characters (in this all-male troupe) also raised a laugh. The 'ultraviolence' was certainly hinted at and some scenes were highly suggestive, but this aspect of the story was sensitively portrayed. Quite a difficult balancing act considering the graphic portrayals in the film version. All in all, 2 hours well spent (in a lovely little theatre too!)
