    I adore Shakespeare and have seen a number of versions of many plays, including all male, all female, all black cast, hip hop, traditional etc. I love the poetry and the cadence of the language. For me, having seen a full bloody version of Titus many years ago, I felt a bit let down. I wasn't sure why the cast were single sex or why there were songs - particularly the one about the bunny. Obviously I appreciate the extreme violence in many forms in this play are so over the top they can be presented as comedic but somehow I didn't want them to be. There were some great acting moments and some flashes of comedy that were appropriate, but I was distracted by the candles, particularly when they were put out too early and had to be relit. I was a bit disappointed and for me it missed the mark Sorry

    This production was amazing in so many ways, you could tell there was so much love shared between the actresses, they were enormously talented and the adaptations were really spot on. Thank you for reminding me of how amazing theatre and esp Shakesphere can be!
