"There are a handful of decent performances struggling to assert themselves, but the play is hobbled by Larmour's decision to place the action within a Victorian music-hall mise-en-scene. Inspired perhaps by Jaques's 'All the world's a stage' speech, the Forest of Arden is big on red swag curtains and woefully light on foliage. Looking stranded and uncomfortable, the actors waver awkwardly between affected melodrama and attitudes more contemporary. A disappointment." ~ Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph, 14 April 2008
