Critical Acclaim

Luxemburger Wort
“Excellent…the audience could not have been more excited.
The company’s work is always intriguing and a treat to see. The Winter’s Tale is a difficult play, dramaturgically quirky and structurally challenging. Cheek by Jowl pulls it off with aplomb. 

Le Figaro
“An original masterpiece...
a privilege!”

La Croix
A dazzling display of grace and intelligence

El Pais
All the vast richness of the world dreamed up by Shakespeare shines with blinding splendour in this Winter's Tale.

Chicago Sun-Times
This was a production of extraordinary nuance... a revelatory Winter’s Tale.”

Under Donnellan’s keen, clear eye, the result is high on the “wonder” that typifies this late-career Bardic romance …brilliantly reconceived.

Luxemburger Wort
As invigorating and intoxicating as shot of adrenaline: as exciting as theatre can get!”
