Fantastic production, fizzing with ideas, flirting with our expectation of this play. So often English productions are marred by twee images of characters wandering around Arden Forest with flowers in their hair, bemoaning their fate or falling in love: the Georgians aren't ashamed to be provacatively theatrical, and heavily ironic in their use of music, which blasts away any bubbles of pretension, yet (counter-intuitively) allows the audience to properly appreciate the romance and the melancholy of this wierd play. Don't worry about the language, the meaning is clear as a bell
