    Some of most recent reviews for Polonius/Ghost in UK tour of Hamlet:

    a powerful performance by John Eastman as Polonius and as the ghost of his dead father. Hertford Mercury

    doubles as Polonius, a political animal to his point-scoring fingertips and to great impact as the Ghost of Hamlet's slain father. Whats on Stage

    John Eastman who played Polonius and the ghost of Hamlet's father, was also outstanding, Portsmouth News

    ..particularly strong performances by Loren O'Dair as Ophelia and John Eastman as Polonius. Loughborough Echo
