NT can do no wrong...
30 April 2020 | by IanSeddon1971See all my reviews

Watched this through NT at home - wish I had seen it live. FABULOUS. A star-strewn cast piling attitude into their roles... Tamzin Grieg was fantastic - as has been widely reported - but then I love her in everything she does, I think. Daniel Rigby's Aguecheek was fabulous, but for me, it was Tim McMullan's Belch that stole the show - I absolutely adored him!

Overall, a magnificent adaption, full of contemporary humour amid the age-old prose.
