Carleton Hobbs (Highly Commended 2011)


“There is something timeless about Robert Elkin’s blazingly intense performance in the title role... Elkin powers out the mighty verses in which Shakespeare charts Richard’s rise and downfall with a lurid force that is both memorable and horrifying“ - The Scotsman (Richard III)

“The wonderfully comic force of nature that is Robert Elkin...” - The Sunday Herald (As You Like It)

"The mercurial Elkin has talent and energy to burn, and the fine cast follow where his clever, high-octane performance leads" - The Sunday Herald Scotland (Much Ado)

"And just one actor - the remarkable Robert Elkin - playing almost all the spirits and victims outside the tight circle of the six main characters." - The Scotsman (Macbeth)

"The talented Robert Elkin (Viola) and Ryan Ferrie (Olivia), achieve a near-perfect balance between comic absurdity and dramatic gravitas." - The Telegraph (Twelfth Night)

"Robert Elkin's Richard is authoritarian one moment, weak-willed the next. You may be seduced by his sensuous rock’n’roll hedonism, but you’d be unwise to trust him. He is quick to cry and just as quick to stop." - The Guardian (Richard II)

"Elkin was a very memorable Benvolio in last year's Romeo and Juliet and brings the same quick wit, timing and sheer physicality to the performance." - The Herald Scotland (Much Ado)
