Selected Reviews of GB’s other production, Romeo and Juliet, at Arundel Castle:
"Thank goodness for GB Theatre Company. A packed Collector Earl’s Garden - the perfect setting - illustrates how important it is to keep the Bard’s work alive, and that when played honestly, with energy and good humour even the bleakest tale can remain wholly relevant and ultimately uplifting." - Gary Shipton, Editor in Chief, West Sussex Gazette (30 August)
"Irreverent, pacy and moving - and performed under the stars - this is Shakespeare as it was and should be." - Joel Adams, The Argus, 4 star review http://www.theargus.co.uk/leisure/critic/14718663.display/
