Reviews
`Not only do the Globe’s bare boards force the audience’s imagination to work overtime, they also have the effect of turning the spectator into a kind of player: you can’t be a passive bystander, you have to participate in the mock Tudor gusto of it all’. Dominic Cavendish, The Independent (1 June 1998).
