This production is very interesting, with perhaps the most phenomenal ending I have ever seen. If you're looking for the kind of shocking political revelations that come with any Brecht play this production is - as I said - interesting. However, I thought it was strange play to put on in this day and age for it is obvious that Brecht was restricted by the 'moral regulations' of his time, and this therefore coloured how he wrote the play. You do sit through what comprises 2 hours of dated writing - all be it fantastically performed - because in the time Brecht was writing, he obviously could not have conveyed his political message in the more complex and overt way he might today. All the same, some brilliant performances, just a strange choice of play to perform.

Saw this wonderful show on Sat afternoon and thought it was superb! Goodman is absolutely amazing, as he moves through the various stages of his character's development - believable, funny, threatening, shocking & much more.

The concluding speech had a number of people around me in tears - just brilliant!

Absolutely brilliant and Goodman is phenomenal. The translation gives the whole an almost Shakesperean feel, and the multi-talented cast are superb. Make sure to take your seats early to catch the pre-show jam session. Entertaining and thought provoking in equal measure, there is, sadly, a great resonance in this tale, for our times.
