The play I felt did lack some thing which was needed,however, Michelle Gomez's performance was outstanding and completly portrayed this broken yet devoted women.
Some harsh reviews which I feel The Cordelia Dream does not deserve. - Fiona G

Sorry, but no. The performers do their best with some nonsense material, but even they seem to have given up the ghost by the end. And given David Hargreaves is playing a talented composer, he needs to learn how to conduct in time to the music (which is the production's saving grace...) - dgr1

I'm surprised by these harsh reviews. I found the play at once witty and cutting, sad and realistic but with a surreal and thought-provoking edge. If a little heavy on the Shakespeare references, I thought The Cordelia Dream none-the-less inspiring, vivacious and clever. - Gertie the Lairy Hairy Quite Contrary Fairy

This at least provides an opportunity to visit Wiltons Music Hall and hear some beautifully haunting music but i'm afraid the play offers little else. The audience seemed utterly bored, myself amongst them. The play says all it needs to in act one. And that,s not a lot. Deeply disappointing. The rsc seem to be saving their poor commissions for London! - martin b
