A gripping performance from Vanessa Redgrave (amongst several others), superb ensemble work, great music and a wonderful inventiveness make this a very fine version of the play, well worth seeing.

Excellent production - but Redgrave was abysmal. She didn't grip the importance of her lines or the role in general at all, and looked like a tramp!
