Good God this is bad!
5 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I didn't really know what to expect, but......wow! No wonder most kids in English class hate this play! This is easily the WORST production of this play I have ever seen, and I love the play very much, so was this ever hard to watch.

SHAME on everybody involved!

There are just so many things wrong with it:

1) Terrible production values 2) Horribly overdone scene gnashing (acting) 3) What's with the hair? 4) Totally garbage sword fights

All I can say is, rent Polanski's version, or Throne of Blood.

STAY AWAY!
