Thought-provoking, Intense, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like historical, classic plays that have psychological and thought-provoking themes. A more intense yet superbly acted script.

Don't see it if You prefer colourful plays set in modern times.

Time Out London
May 3rd, 2019

This revival probably isn’t the revelation it needed to be to elevate this weird, haunting play into the crowded Ibsen first division. But it’s worth a look, and if you don’t catch it now it’ll be a long wait until the next one.

Ibsen offers an ambitious fusing of intimate and intricate feeling with a broad encapsulation of societal schism: a time of ascendant radicalism versus a reactionary push-back from the status quo.

It doesn't quite convince me that it is one of Ibsen's masterpieces, but it is certainly good to have it back on stage.

This has been dubbed Ibsen’s darkest and most complex play...Ian Rickson’s breathtaking production does justice to its passion and politics, and boasts stellar performances from Hayley Atwell and Tom Burke.

Either way, the production sweeps you along on, um, currents of energy not always associated with this playwright. In talking up to his audience, Rickson and co with luck may well take the town.

...Ian Rickson’s production feels frustratingly stiff and static. Atwell’s rich, humane performance transcends this, but it remains a rather thinky, talky production. It engages the brain without stirring the heart.

The Times (UK)

Ian Rickson directs, stoking the passion, political and emotional, although it does take the occasional melodramatic turn. That is quickly absorbed by the sheer austerity of the set.
