Funny, Slow, Overrated, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if I’m not sure what to say other than if you want to see the globe lit up and full at night during the winter…

Don't see it if Where do I start. This was embarrassingly bad. The place is wonderful but I think William would be cringing if he knew about this. Read more

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Profound, Great staging

See it if You want to see a fairy tale told in a different accessible way without the CBeebies fluff. Incredibly thought provoking and relevant.

Don't see it if It is a cold day! You are too easily offended by theatre commenting on social themes or political subject matter

Unusual, Off the mark, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You want to enjoy The Globe experience and have read the premise for this particular production with It’s themes of war and refugees’ plight

Don't see it if If you’re expecting a traditional, Christmassy family show. There are moments of fun but don’t expect to leave full of Christmas cheer!

Palestine and ukraine hats, Refugees, Trivial politics, Cliched, Confusing

See it if You’ve never been to the Globe. But still disappointing.

Don't see it if You’re looking for a show to entertain your kids. It’s not for kids. Heavy themes of immigration, war refugees and boat / channel crossing.
