The all-female Shakespeare company.
I can't wait to see what this company come up with next...
Enormously entertaining... one of the strongest ensemble casts I've seen at the Fringe.
One of the most stunning Shakespeare tragedies I’ve ever seen!
Superlative understanding of the language, a well-oiled elegance of staging and interaction, original, intelligent and gregarious humour – all delivered with a slick energy, a deeply professional confidence and array of talent.
Keeping audience members on the edge of their seats through both laughter and horror... fast, fresh, furious and funny!
The total femaleness of this riff on Shakespeare’s first tragedy not only works wonderfully, but is totally integral to its conception. It’s a slick and farcically funny production that exudes self-aware theatricality and, of course, buckets of blood!
Quick-fire, taut and unremitting... Keep your eyes open for Smooth Faced Gentlemen — they will do great things. They already are.
The real strength of this universally strong ensemble lies in their masterful command of the language, finding the nuances and oft-forgotten humour... Funny, ferocious, creative, and brilliantly performed!
A whirlwind riot of innovation!
