Bedlam's acclaimed audience-immersive productions of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan and Shakespeare's Hamlet return to New York in repertory, with all of the more than 50 roles played by Edmund Lewis, Andrus Nichols, Tom O'Keefe and Eric Tucker. The company's fast-paced, highly physical production of Hamlet has been dubbed "lively, modern and amiable" by The New York Times, and their Saint Joan received equally effusive praise, winning the Best Revival of 2012 designation from The Wall Street Journal, whose reviewer called it "the most exciting George Bernard Shaw revival I've ever seen, bar none." Bedlam is famed for their signature style, which stages classics in an intimate house, with few sets but plenty of intense physicality and emotion that bring you up-close-and-personal with the struggles of Denmark's dark prince and the martyred Joan of Arc.

Good effort. " Irish version" is a refreshing idea. Excellent period costumes. Acting was good but uneven . It seemed that the actors got tired by the time mid second act rolled in. Perhaps the second act was a little drawn out...
Thomas Kilroy's version of The Seagull is a dazzling reappraisal of Chekhov's first great comedy, a story of a distinguished actress and her passionate, lonely son. In the decline of Anglo-Irish estates and the emergence of the Land League, Kilroy unearths fascinating parallels to the shifts in Russian society that inform Chekhov's original. This acclaimed adaptation illuminates the play's universal themes while revealing new social and political angles.
