"Miss Lila de Nobili's costumes, lovely though they were in colour and texture...were too faithful perhaps to the paintings of the period and would have benefited by some tactful transcription from the static drama of costumes on a canvas to the livelier drama of costumes for a stage." Caryl Brahms, Plays and Players 5.60
Opening Date: 5 April 1960
Theatre: Shakespeare Memorial Theatre
Theatre Company: Royal Shakespeare Company
