Modernised, Evocative, Good acting, Disappointing, Bad staging

See it if you have teen-age children, you want to see an interpretation of the book, you want to be part of the Regent season.

Don't see it if you want cohesive dialogue and direction. Both were uninviting. Worse though, the set was very poor/uninspired for Regent's Park. Read more

Mesmerizing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if The open air setting is perfect. The story is a brilliant classic illustrating English/Indian social history. The adaptation is clever.

Don't see it if You are a purist - Colin does not bravely tackle his weakness & determinedly learn to walk motivated by Mary. PC-ness gone mad. Read more
