Exquisite, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great singing

See it if you enjoy a clever adaptation of a Brecht favourite with multi-purpose sets, quality vocals and a thought-provoking plot.

Don't see it if you cannot tolerate a 90-minute Act 1, certain dragged moments and the requirement of a historical background knowledge to some degree.

Profound, Great singing, Great acting, Intelligent, Clever

See it if It was good to see Brecht on stage, the music was good and it was funny in places.

Don't see it if While there was music don't expect it to be a musical.

The Stage (UK)
October 7th, 2022

"A boisterous energy from the outset. Performers swap fluidly between roles, trying out postures and gestures whenever they depict a new persona for the first time."

All That Dazzles (UK)

"It all might seem serious on the surface, it is also full of laugh out loud funny moments, with witty lines and visual gags providing a firm balance to the tragedy that is unfolding before our eyes."

"Rose Theatre can mount its own production of a monument of Brechtian theatre, it’s disappointing to discover that it’s so tough to love. It really doesn’t have to be this hard. "

“Running at nearly three hours, the show ultimately feels a bit bloated.”

"This is digestible Brecht that will no doubt appeal to the legions of Fletcher fans that I'm sure will be flocking to the Rose."
