Hoyle’s commanding stage presence combined with Heyes’ excellent direction as well as beautiful innovative cinematography and animation

4 stars, QUEER GURU

A pungent and stylishly captured performance

THE GUARDIAN

What works here is Hoyle’s depiction of both charisma and obsession, and the original compositions by Tom Parkinson. The bespoke sound design, the filming choices, all add to an unsettling yet rich experience

LOUREVIEWS

a stellar performance…Hoyle plays the perfect Hedda

NORTH WEST END

Heyes’ production is innovative in its approach to reimagining the story and in putting Hedda’s self-absorbed perspective even more firmly at the heart of the show

4 stars, THE REVIEWS HUB

It stands to say that the cinematography in this production (directed by Jen Heyes) is nothing less than brilliant
