"Mr Phillips understands this open stage, having formerly run Stratford, Ontario, from which Chichester was copied. In collaboration with his designer, Daphne Dare, who gives Shakespeare's play a clean elegance of a neo-classical painting by David, he flashes instantly from an admittedly antiseptic Egypt with its siren to the icy halls of imperious Rome and its dictator." ~ John Barber, Daily Telegraph, 17 May 1985
