Sadly I must agree with those who disparage this performance, as a seasoned RSC theatregoer, and someone who saw the almost Complete Works (all bar Alls Well and Phoenix and the Turtle), I must agree that this was a second rate show that was wholly unworthy of its place as the last Main House show, much better that something as good as the Henry VI and Richard III should go to London.
