2015many of the cast give strong performances.there is tangible chemistry between Amber Mun (Masha) and Alexander Gordon-Wood (Vershinin).
Matthew Patridge

2015Alexander Gordon-Wood steals just about every scene.. his Lieutenant-Colonel Vershinin appears via a diligent study of measured gravitas.

2014Alexander Gordon-Wood was the most impressive as Jacques/Oliver spouting the immortal line 'All the world's a stage'with gravity and panache
Ella Walker

2014Alexander Gordon-Wood makes an effective contrast as the older,destructively honest version
Paul Vale

2014Alexander Gordon-Wood is an impressively irascible Robert Crannock
Jane Martin
whatsonstage.com
2014Towering over characters, physically/vocally, Alexander Gordon-Wood as Crannock, ...combination personal/political brilliantly worked out, performance has range to cover all aspects..
Peter Scott-Presland

2012Alexander Gordon-Wood is a believable Malvolio
unnamed
thestage.co.uk
2012and brilliant Alexander Gordon-Wood as the pompous, arrogant Malvolio were all well developed characters, that gave energy and vitlaity
unnamed
southwarknews.co.uk
2012stand out moment when Malvolio, played by excellent Gordon-Wood, reads a letter he thinks he has received from Olivia
Helen Potter
docklands24.co.uk
2012Malvolio is a force to be reckoned with. Physically commanding, he is conetmptuous and distant to those beneath him,
