    "Peake’s delicate ferocity, her particular mixture of concentration and lightness, ensure that you want to follow her whenever she appears. "
    Susannah Clapp, The Guardian
  • Highest Rating
    "It’s a terrifically fast, fluent, attacking production and Peake’s Hamlet is like a page-boy gone bad, relying on mates for a supply of drugs, sporting a aggressive short haircut that comes from prep school or the army: blond, but unlike the Byronic crop of Olivier’s Hamlet. Her casting isn’t a gimmick. Peake looks like a stowaway, or a French resistance fighter in disguise: her femaleness gives a new edge of differentness and alienation and anger...."
    Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

    "A triumph of re-invention... Intimate and intense.... Stunningly good."
