    "Rock-and-roll Shakespeare's a blast"
    Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph ★★★★
     
    "The most hardhearted purists would melt at Filter's 90-minute reworking of this play, directed with passion, panache and precision by Sean Holmes. For newcomers to Shakespeare I can't think of a better introduction. The music is ferocious, fiery and funny: at times, it makes the Stones look like a group of genteel clergymen. This is not a send-up: it's a celebration – mad, wild, loving and hilarious."
    John Peter, The Sunday Times ★★★★
     
    Filter's lo-fi, 90min remix of Shakespeare's comedy infects the audience with the play's celebratory spirit of madness from the start...You leave feeling slightly changed yourself.
    The Metro ★★★★
     
    "This modern staging makes the Bard's timeless comedy of mis-matched romantic desires burst with fresh irreverence."
    The London Paper ★★★★
     
    "Fresh, fast and very funny... Chaotic, creative and zinging with
    vibrant irreverence."
