"Hey ho, the wind and the rain. Chester's charming open-air theatre has entered its third season with the welcome innovation of a canopy over the seating area, but it's scant compensation for a cast condemned to play much of the second part of Twelfth Night in a downpour. Yet, in a curious sense, the conditions actually enhance the impact of Alex Clifton's production, whose mood, like the sky, darkens threateningly as it goes along. 'Now tempests be kind,' implores Krupna Pattani's Viola, to ironic laughter from the audience..." ~ Alfred Hickling, The Guardian, 28 July 2012, in Theatre Record 2012, Issue 15
