Théâtre ()

De Lee Simpson & Phelim McDermott d'après le film de la MGM/Sam Jaffe (1973)

Résumé: Seven self-regarding critics assemble at a disused theatre in response to a mysterious invitation. Too late they discover its gruesome purpose as Edward Lionheart, an actor frenzied by a lifetime of sneering reviews, hacks his revengeful way through the bloody works of Shakespeare, assisted by a gang of murderous tramps.
The laws of theatre supersede the laws of physics in this macabre exhibition of putty noses, Kensington gore and some very large acting indeed.

Presse : PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "An intelligent, larky evening that offers, in more senses than one, a bloody good show." MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "However enjoyable it is, there is also something hermetic about the show's preoccupation with theatre.." SUSANNAH CLAPP for THE OBSERVER says, "Giddily enjoyable." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "..I also found Broadbent’s endlessly confused quotations from the Shakespeare canon a bit wearisome. But he blends ersatz Irving — Sir Henry not Mr Wardle — and flatulent Wolfit with wonderfully hammy panache."
