"[...] the truly Shakespearean greatness of Patrick Stewart's portrayal of Shakespeare" (The Independent)
"Bond's tone and range is limited and there's little Stewart can do with this thankless part, although he does movingly convey Shakespeare's distress at the brutality of a society that relishes hangings and bear baitings."
"Mr Stewart's performance and Angus Jackson's direction are pretty-much faultless, even given my reservations about the pace." (London Theatre)
"An actor of Stewart’s ability could play this one-dimensional role in his sleep and at times appears to be doing just that." (Telegraph)
"Patrick Stewart superbly reinforces Bond's vision by giving us a tragic Shakespeare, but also one alive to his own contradictions: he craves financial security but tells his nagging daughter that "money always turns to hate", is brusquely business-like with a rich landowner like William Combe yet strangely relaxed with a wander-witted gardener." (Guardian)
"It almost works, because in Sir Patrick Stewart’s performance you can so easily believe in the life portrayed." (The Arts Desk)
"Stewart’s Shakespeare slopes across the stage like an old, arthritic hound; quiet, diminutive and brooding with frustrated barks of anger that fail to scare the wolves away." (A Younger Theatre)
