Tour de Force
23 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Absolutely stunning production from stage to screen. Maxine Peake as Hamlet works brilliantly and her performance was a real tour de force. My only criticism was that the music was discordant and overly loud at times making it uncomfortable to listen to. It is VERY long - take refreshments, you'll need them but there is an interval which, for comforts sake, would have been better a little sooner than it came. The second part seemed very much shorter but I didn't time it. Most of the the supporting actors were very powerful with some gorgeous comic touches and how they managed to convey everything with such simple staging is beyond me. Go see this, it will knock your socks off!
