Review Round-up: Mixed Bag for Globe Bedlam
Her play is Bedlam, which continues in rep until 1 October and presents a fictional portrayal of a London hospital for the insane.
Set in 18th-century London against an anarchic backdrop of binge drinkers, gin sellers and ballad singers the production promises "dance and song with scenes of lust, violence and absurd comedy."
Jessica Swale directs a cast including Whatsonstage.com Award nominee Ella Smith (Phyllis), Sam Crane (Laurence), Barbara Marten (Annabel), Finty Williams (Gardenia), Rose Leslie (May), Danny Lee Wynter (Oliver) and Jade Williams (Nancy).
So did critics go mad for this theatrical milestone?
