★★★ … finds a sure footing through the derivative thickets to deliver a mostly charming and sometimes quite-affecting evening. Toss in a couple of brilliantly comic turns and some stellar fight scenes (the latter created by Matt Hawkins), and it makes the case … to head to Howard Street to check it out.
— Chicago Tribune
RECOMMENDED … Strawdog Theatre Company’s production, directed by Robert Kauzlaric, manages to make good sport out of unspectacular material, with a talented cast that relishes the silliness of the play as if it were the Bard’s most luscious verse … The ensemble work is strong … Strawdog makes much of the space in The Factory Theater, where crates and fabric equally become opulent palace and wilderness.
— New City
RECOMMENDED … Strawdog Theatre's adaptation, directed by Robert Kauzlaric, sorts through the play's dense web of cunning betrayals and mistaken identities with admirable precision. It's also inexplicably funny.
— Chicago Reader
JEFF AWARDS RECOMMENDED

Shakespeare. You've heard of him. This play has all the vicious quips, bloody blades, cross-dressed ladies and compromised bedchambers you've come to expect from the man. But then things get nuts. It's a no-holds-barred epic, a dark fairy tale set off by a king's rash verdict and a princess who won't stand for her man's wrongful banishment. The acclaimed director of Lifeline Theatre's Hunger and Irish Theatre of Chicago's The White Road. recently seen onstage in our production of The Arsonists, makes his Strawdog directing debut.
