Awful

Left at the interval

Have had more excitement sitting on the toilet

Truly cack handed direction

Cast shouting and rushing their lines

Lack of any sort of modulation and poor casting of roles

Static scene after another

A really and truly disappointing end to a weak season in the WE

I would suggest to Grandage he takes a LONG break from directing anything (particularly Shakespeare) and also to try a different set designer in the future

This project has failed in all the ways that the Donmar WE season triumphed in

Jude Law makes almost no impact in the title role

Spent most of the time I was there thinking how big his bald area is
