ON TWELFTH NIGHT

“Fantastic … compulsory viewing for anyone who thinks that Shakespeare’s a) boring or b) best treated as a special heritage case”  
 Michael Coveney / Independent


“Puts the fun back into Twelfth Night 
and allows us to become participants 
in a feast of misrule”  
 Michael Billington / Guardian


“Rock-and-roll Shakespeare’s a blast…
Filter is a company blessed with wit, style and a touch of magic… The jokes are genuinely funny, the music is both spontaneous and exciting … This irreverent and inventive Twelfth Night never outstays its welcome … just the ticket” 
  Dominic Cavendish / Daily Telegraph



ON A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

“Miraculously captures the madness at the heart of Shakespeare’s comedy.”  Michael Billington / The Guardian

“Filter’s Dream is part rock gig, part exuberant joke, exploding the conventions of the form and remaking them in dazzling new shapes.”
 Claire Allfree / Metro 

“Exuberantly bonkers … each character and every minute of every scene crackles with care and invention … it’s the funniest and maddest ‘Dream’ I’ve ever seen.”  Andrzej Lukowski / Time Out
