Reviews

"Three people are in a room, one a former friend visiting a married couple in a country house by the sea. There’s an ever-shifting balance of subtle domination with a hint of menace. It’s Pinter territory, so take what you wish from this intriguing staging by Michael Cabot in its elegant setting designed by Geraldine Bunzl. The conversational sparring, feinting and countering is nicely paced and rhythmic, civilised and well-mannered, stillness skillfully masking tensions of sexual chemistry."
The Stage on Old Times

"This enchanting, life-affirming, moving and often very funny production is an absolute treat."
The Stage on Love in the Title

"London Classic Theatre have built a fine reputation for exciting and provocative touring theatre. Michael Cabot’s excellent production can only add to that...an intense, claustrophobic, utterly absorbing production."

The Stage on Frozen

"Closer than a close-up, fascinating, repellent - remarkable theatre, impeccably presented."
Oxford Times on Closer

"London Classic Theatre is now a major player on the middle-scale touring circuit if its last production of Molly Sweeney and this one are to go by...the voice of Orton sounds loud and clear in this excellent, very black and very funny production."
The Stage on Entertaining Mr Sloane

"Michael Cabot's powerful and absorbing production...this is world class theatre."
Chelmsford Weekly News on Molly Sweeney

"An excellent production, tastefully directed by Michael Cabot, which will not only tour successfully but could also be worth a run in the right West End theatre."
The Stage on The Killing of Sister George

"Sensitive and touching, very funny - an elegant, disciplined production, evoking the world of 18th Century eloquence...the cutting edge of modern directing."
Manchester on Stage on The Game of Love and Chance

"A first-class production, with a talented cast, which deserves to play to capacity audiences in the months to come."
Oxford Times on My Mother Said I Never Should

"London Classic Theatre's inaugural national touring production left a challenging impression. An undoubted triumph for director Michael Cabot."
Westmorland Gazette on Oleanna
