See it if you love Enoch.

Don't see it if you don't crave a production of R&J.

Time Out London

And there are lots of fine performances: Rebekah Murrell...is a compelling ball of energy as Juliet...It’s a bit broken. Traditionalists will recoil. But it’s thrillingly imperfect.

But messaging is the order of the day in Ince’s vision, which has flashes of worthwhile invention but also an interpretative lens rendered smeary by its earnest gloss.

[Ola Ince] keeps a firm grasp on the verse so that it is not drowned out. The play is tightened to under two hours – and all the more gripping for it.

The tone sometimes feels heavy-handed and didactic but, at other times, Ince’s approach explodes the play in a necessary way.

Ince adds touches of visceral, unpleasant gore – Mercutio whines as he dies, his youthfulness is displayed in startling horror. This a tragedy of society, rather than one of a stricken pair of lovers.
