Reviews for Richard II
Performed by The Nomadic Academy of Fools
"...a fascinating production. Personally I
felt that the guts of the story came through very effectively (and it
was very moving). The basic pattern, of a King who carelessly removes
the fundamental structure of authority (the right of inheritance) and
is then faced by a complete evaporation of his own power, has a
startling relevance now...The Shakesperian warning is highly relevant.
Congratulations to everyone involved"

“Mesmerising, like windows into layers of the soul”
– Mike Sells
“I’ve never seen a performance quite like it – I spent much of the next day thinking about the play, and how the performance style had meant it was something I experienced rather than observed, how it involved me in a way that wasn’t always comfortable (no bad thing)”
- Nicky Getgood
“FASCINATING! I actually liked it much more than I thought I would and even found it disturbing in parts – which is odd as you were just a bunch of fools in broad daylight! WAS F***ING AMAZING!”
– Julie Burchill
