A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

“Puck, alone among the fairies, wore no mask, setting her apart. The colour scheme of her makeup along with her acrobatics were evocative of Mark Quarterly’s Ariel from the RSC Tempest, which recently transferred to the Barbican: in spite of trappings ranging from digital avatars to denim both performances were at heart thoroughly traditional, offering airy spirits that gambol in tight costumes.”

Sarah Marie Westh | Reviewing Shakespeare 2017
