A brilliant play but poorly executed. Max Irons sadly failed to live up to the character of the smooth Machiavellian persona of Stephen Bellamy. Fumbling his lines at the key dramatic moments and falling short of the Stephen’s effortless charisma and motivation to outplay his political opponents. Iron’s lacked the confidence to pull it off, with it sometimes feeling as if the director had simply told his actors to shout during the tense scenes between Bellamy and his mentor Paul Zara. It failed to capture the essence of the play. Equally the chemistry between Irons and the campaign intern played by Aysha Kala was weak with distinctly sub-par acting on display. An overall disappointing performance for a play with some superb pieces of dialog and a brilliant portrayal of the backstabbing world of American politics sitting in the shadow of its adaptation for the big screen in the Ides of March.


One word: Brilliant! Amazing cast, amazing play. Amazing Max Irons.

Hilla Bar

Simply amazing! Went to the first preview on the 11th of September. Max Irons shines as the lead character, leading a great cast that includes Rachel Tucker (of Wicked fame) and jaw dropping performance by Shaun Williamson. Funny moments in between dramatic backstabbing, for £16, it's craziness not to see it. 5/5 stars
