Time Out London
March 20th, 2019

Richard Eyre directs, and his dark, intense production feels like about as decent a fist of this play as you could expect whilst taking it on its own terms. But Hare’s ideas clunk and chug away laboriously...'

London Theatre
March 20th, 2019

Being a David Hare play, there's more talk than action; but Richard Eyre's elegant, superbly acted production, on an expansive set by Fotini Dimou, rivets the attention...'

Richard Eyre’s production, elegantly designed by Fotini Dimou, is spacious, unhurried and text-driven...Penelope Wilton gives a fine turn as an understated heroine in this revival...'

March 20th, 2019

Eyre directs with his customary poise and care... It's not a revival that is going to shake anyone's view of theatre or of Hare's output. But it is a quiet pleasure, a shining little joy.'

March 20th, 2019

An artful but uneventful chamber piece saved by super performances...despite the best efforts of Richard Eyre’s classy revival, Bay at Nice remains very much a sketch rather than a finished painting.'
