Hear! Hear!

The staging is unfailingly creative and lively and the show triumphs
despite comparatively weak performances in the title roles.  It makes
the viewer aware of how little the real strength of the play depends on
the romantic story and how much of the action is really between the
warriers on either side.

By all means, have a look.  You are not likely to see a better staging
of this play.
