"Stephen Brimson Lewis's high-walled set, dominated by myriad fragile wooden slats, suits the court and rebel scenes well, but drains life from the carry-on in the tavern. With the musicians kept at one sterile remove, aloft, the exuberance of the Gad's Hill prank and its aftermath feels under-tapped."
