"The self-directed company takes this as the production's core values: with only 12 players and a bare stage, they will not strive for a realistic rendering, but they will strive to move us. And they do."
"The key to such a production working is the company members' skills in speaking Shakespeare's (and Fletcher's) verse, their total trust in Shakespeare's (and Fletcher's) script, and their innate understanding of Shakespeare's (and Fletcher's) staging conditions and how to make them work in the intimate playing space of the replication of Shakespeare's (and Fletcher's) own Blackfriars. The 12 actors also give 100 percent devotion to each of their characters, no matter how many they might play among the four-score-and-more in the play."
