"A dazzling display of grace and intelligence"
"All the vast richness of the world dreamed up by Shakespeare shines with blinding splendour in this Winter’s Tale"
"As invigorating and intoxicating as shot of adrenaline: as exciting as theatre can get! (…) The company’s work is always intriguing and a treat to see. The Winter’s Tale is a difficult play, dramaturgically quirky and structurally challenging. Cheek by Jowl mostly pulls it off with aplomb"
"Donnellan’s production was about loss, and by bringing out the loss of an unseen character in Bohemia, the production united its two halves emotionally. (…)The cast was uniformly phenomenal, bringing life to individual characters and individual set pieces. This was a production of extraordinary nuance"
