It is considered a "difficult" and "challenging" play but this production really makes it work. Of course Fiona Shaw carries it - she is superb. But ultimately it is very moving, stimulating, and yes, challenging. The preview ground to a technical halt the night I saw it and they came, we were told, "that close" to stopping the whole show, but after a lot of banging and hammering they made it work again - and I would say practically everybody in the audience waited that long 25 minutes for the final scenes. Very fine - just what the NT should be doing.

I thought that the performance was oustanding. All the actors gave their best. The plot about art, politics, sex, women's rights and above all power was presented in a fantastic stage setup. Much food for thought and a night not to be forgotten
