Richard III 2016 Press Release

CVP Theatre Reviews

Richard III - RSC Swan Theatre Stratford-upon-Avon 2016 -  Joseph F. Stephenson

The RSC is to be commended for again inviting these talented and exceptional performers to its stage. Their return to the Swan for Richard III proved to be a very satisfying, energetic performance of this always-and-again popular play. http://bloggingshakespeare.com/reviewing-shakespeare/12951-2/

Twelfth Night - Leicester Squarer Theatre London 2015 - WordPress

The performances were spot on – each actor captivating in their roles. https://revuesandreviews.wordpress.com/2015/08/28/twelfth-night-leicester-square-theatre-27-08-2016/

Hamlet - Shakespeare's Globe London 2014 -  Unseen Academic & Shakespeare's Globe 2014 Review

There were only six actors so there was a lot of doubling up – one that I especially enjoyed was a male actor doubling Gertrude and Rosencrantz   http://bit.ly/2cvRlUV

Mention should also be made of the performance at the Globe in July of Hamlet by the Combat Veteran Players, a drama group (supported by Stoll). The players are all military veterans who are overcoming, or have overcome, mild to severe mental trauma following military service.  Review  Report

Henry V - Old Vic Tunnels London 2013 - James FitzRoy

With Henry being performed by many of the actors and the small cast swapping roles throughout, there is a genuine sense that the King is the man of the people and the people are part of the wider army of the audience. https://thequantumlounge.wordpress.com/tag/combat-veteran-players/
