The London Evening Standard
November 24th, 2021

His delivery is mostly urgent and incantatory, forcefully hitting the same note on each word. Even with such dense material, Fiennes casts a compelling spell.

November 25th, 2021

Fiennes ... beautifully honours the spirit of the text, which poses questions rather than forcing answers. This isn’t a show where you can sit back and let the entertainment come to you; it’s one that leaves room for you to find your own reading.
