ANOTHER NIGHT
BEFORE CHRISTMAS

*****

Broadwayworld, Gary Naylor.

ITS A WONDERFUL
LIFE

****

The Stage.

LIBERTY

LIBERTY by Glyn Maxwell. Shakespeare's Globe, London.

“Deliciously light and pointed, helped by the scamper of Guy Retallack's direction: anyone who thinks the Globe can't be intimate is yet again proved wrong.”

Susannah Clapp, The Observer

WORLDS END

WORLDS END by Paul Sellar. Trafalgar Studios, West End, London

“A harrowing treat…The play ends with two unexpected, and quite brilliant twists that had me gasping in admiration. Guy Retallack's direction is exquisitely judged and Paul Sellar is a writer we can cherish." 

The Spectator

FUTURE ME

FUTURE ME by Stephen Brown. Theatre503, London.

“…a truly remarkable production.”

Alistair Smith, The Stage.

TOMMY

"The single finest thing about Guy Retallack's touring production is that it stays true to this sense of rage, and to its fierce continuing significance for the Britain we live in today." 

****

Joyce Macmillan, The Scotsman

THE SECRET
RAPTURE

THE SECRET RAPTURE by David Hare. Lyric Theatre, West End, London. Bill Kenwright.

"This could be one of the most important revivals of the year. Guy Retallack's calm but harrowing production...

the final effect is pity and terror: two old friends you seldom meet in contemporary plays." 

John Peter, The Sunday Times.
