Press

Twelfth Night (Abbey Theatre, Dublin)

A daringly modern telling of Shakespeare's comedy of desire, disguise and deception makes the play seem more true to itself...a whip-smart production...

**** The Irish Times

The Threepenny Opera (The Gate Theatre, Dublin)

...a triumphant revival...succeeds where most others fail.'
The Guardian

Much Ado About Nothing / Hello Dolly (Regents Park)

...makes every member of the audience feel that they are at the centre of things, the whole enhanced by superb lighting by Simon Mills.
