"It's a poetic, orthodox and - save for a rowdy outbreak of folk-rock in the Bohemian scenes - generally restrained production set in a repressive world of stiff Edwardian collars and hard, white parquet floors." ~ Alfred Hickling, "The Winter's Tale", The Guardian, 26 October 2016
"Whether you are a fan of Shakespeare or not you cannot fail to be impressed with the quality of this production and the acting ability of its cast." ~ Steve Howarth, "Review: The Winter's Tale", Manchester Evening News, 26 October 2016
