"David Farr's production is set in a decaying club and is held together by Jonathan Slinger, whose Malvolio is like a chief floorwalker from Grace Brothers [of the popular 1970s sitcom Are You Being Served?], Kevin McMonagle's ageing Teddy Boy Feste and Nicholas Day's authentic booze-hound Sir Toby Belch." ~ Neil Norman, Daily Express, 27 April 2010, in Theatre Record 2012, Issue 9
"Twelfth Night features a crumbling art deco hotel." ~ Patrick Marmion, Daily Mail, 4 May 2012, in Theatre Record 2012, Issue 9
"...while the superb presence and diction of Cecilia Noble's Abbess [in Comedy of Errors] is a pleasure encountered again in her Maria and Juno in David Farr's productions of Twelfth Night and The Tempest." ~ Patrick Carnegy, Spectator, 5 May 2012, in Theatre Record 2012, Issue 9
