Credits:

'(Amber) James is terrific as both Titania & Hippolyta - she speaks the verse with suppleness, and has a real air of authority.' - Time out 'Uniformly excellent with standout performances from Amber James' - The Stage James notably captures Cressida’s lovestruck pragmatism and movingly shows her to be a victim of the machinations of war, of men- Guardian Amber James (definitely the staging’s highlight) is clever, stoic and witty – and, one imagines, pretty good at seeing through the warmongering and strutting occurring all around her.' - The Stage
