"Malcolm Pride's set, an awesome assembly of stairs, tiers, lifts and balustrades, may possibly have been trying to suggest some sort of medieval cage. It was architecturally splendid without materially bolstering Michael Elliott's conception - whatever that may have been." ~ Milton Shulman, "Hardly what Shakespeare had in mind", Evening Standard, 4 April 1963
