Little played Shakespeare in a cosy venue where 5 actors play 13 characters. The plot is a mix of Shakespearean plots with love, wager, deceit, Kings and Queens, battles and even a bit of the underworld, so it is not easy to class it in any category. The ensemble do a great job juggling the characters and it works well for the long first half where itself can be seen as a standalone tragedy with a few loose ends. The second half, the actors are on overdrive and that is when it got a little confusing as actors switching characters mid scene and at one point talking to themselves. However, given the resources, it was a valiant effort and the director was to credit for a largely bare staging and yet managed to bring quite a lot to the play. The production also had a charm to it which maybe due to the intimacy of the venue and worth a visit.
