Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if You like the standard Shakespeare set up of unrequited love, a shipwreck, mistaken identity, a fool, and gender swapping!

Don't see it if You can’t go along with a silly plot that was meant for the poor and illiterate to get some enjoyment!

Great staging, Humourous, Entertaining, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You want to be amused. You don’t have to know Shakespeare, you just have to like entertainment.

Don't see it if You only like musicals (but still worth a try!)

Confusing, Queer, Clever

See it if You enjoy a bit of shakespeare with a queer story and great representation

Don't see it if You struggle with shakespeare and do not previously know the play as you can get lost very easily.

Uneven, Entertaining

See it if You like colour, a beautiful setting, know the plot, have a good sense of fun, want to discuss it afterwards.

Don't see it if You are likely to get annoyed by the inconsistency of the production, want to believe in the relationships.

Enchanting, Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you like a modern, refreshing take on one of Shakespeare’s most famous works.

Don't see it if you struggle with complex language, and if the length/content is too ‘heavy.’
