REVIEWS ROUND-UP

STAR RATING The Guardian

“whatever the play’s limitations, it has long been a gold-wrapped gift for actors and so it proves here. Redgrave, in particular, demonstrates her consummate artistry.”

STAR RATING The Daily Telegraph

“Jones succeeds in the hard task of making a good man genuinely interesting as Hoke, and the moments when his pride is hurt, or he reflects on personal slights and the injustices of racial prejudice, are beautifully conveyed, as is his warmth and resilient humour.”

STAR RATING Evening Standard

“The production may be too sepia-toned, and the episodic storytelling will strike some as very spare, but this is a graceful and quietly potent drama.”

STAR RATING The Independent

“All tightly reproving mouth, blue-eyed glare and bristling testiness, Redgrave is very funny at conveying the resentment of this retired Southern school-ma’am”

STAR RATING Daily Express

“Perhaps unsurprisingly, much of the enjoyment of watching David Esbjornson’s beautifully-pitched production, which has transferred here following an acclaimed Broadway run, comes from simply watching these theatrical titans in full flow, in particular the mighty Vanessa Redgrave and the impossibly sonorous James Earl Jones.”
