REVIEWS

'An accessible and justified reclamation that will no doubt divide critics but intrigue even casual passers with a vision that's as bold as its blaring soundtrack.'
'Wild and entertaining'
'I’m not objecting to experimentation and radical interpretation per se; and there’s no denying that this late play has a sprawling quality that tempts the secateurs.'
'EastEnders actor Maddy Hill brings gutsy toughness as the heroine of this refocused Shakespeare adaptation, but Matthew Dunster’s violent setting seems at odds with the play’s sentiment.'
'If the quality of the verse speaking is variable, it’s collateral damage, a ransom to be paid for the unusually varied mix of performers.'

STORYLINE

London. 2016. A strange and unsettled time – where men and the violence of gangs rules the streets.
In a dangerous world we hear a new voice – Imogen’s.
Suffocated by her father's aggression – her man kicked out of town, her life under threat, poisoned by the drugs of her step-mother – she strikes out on her own to try and reach the man she loves.
