2016Robert Vernon gives good value as Lucius O'Trigger, a harmless would-be adventurer with too much blarney for his own good.
Mark Green

2016A Collector's Item. There really isn’t anything out of place in a wild and thoroughly enjoyable three hours of fun.
David Upton
britishtheatreguide.info
2016Delightfully sparky. Enjoyable classic with some fine comic turns. ★★★★
Stephen Longstaffe
thestage.co.uk
2016Vernon does a fine job of gradually engaging the audience’s sympathy for a character who initially is extremely unappealing. ★★★★
Martin Shipton
walesonline.co.uk
2016Excellent performances and sensitive direction by Zoë Waterman fully exploit Hare’s skills in interlacing the personal, political and the emotional.
Clare Brennan
theguardian.com
2016A welcome revival, this production delivers with a forensic attention to detail and a sense of noirish atmospherics. ★★★★
Dominic Cavendish - The Sunday Telegraph

2016Philip, played by Robert Vernon is entrancing. The antagonistic chemistry between father and son really works on stage.
Karen Morley-Chesworth
cumbria24.com
2016Very, very cleverly done...the talent and versatility on the stage is just incredible.
BBC Radio Cumbria
bbc.co.uk
2016The other characters provide a nicely phlegmatic foil. Robert Vernon’s cad-for-hire is understated and amoral. ★★★★
Stephen Longstaffe
thestage.co.uk
2016Robert Vernon’s performance as Philip Lucas often gives us a nicely sympathetic bystander to the main event.
Stephen Longstaffe
thestage.co.uk
2016Like all good art, this play challenges your perceptions of what is and what should be.
Ken Powell
egremont2day.co.uk
2016Theatre By The Lake has put on an incredibly provocative play which will no doubt trigger discussions.
Federica Bedendo
timesandstar.co.uk
2015A superb piece of theatre. A Doll’s House benefits from a stellar group of actors.
Jafar Iqbal
exeuntmagazine.com
2015A taut figure in formal black dress and beard, makes a figure of alarming threat finding his own late redemption.
Adam Somerset
theatre-wales.co.uk
2015A gripping production of a remarkably prescient play. Krogstad comes across more victim than villain, his blackmailing seeming almost reasonable. 
Othniel Smith
britishtheatreguide.info
2015Robert Vernon gives a strong performance as Krogstad. ★★★★
Liz Day
walesonline.co.uk
2015An evening of mighty verse, glittering imagery and compulsive violence. A rare treat.
Robert Gore-Langton
independent.co.uk
2015One of the most sympathetic characters is key worker Miko, played with warmth and affinity by Robert Vernon.
Phil Lowe
philloweactor.blogspot.co.uk
2015Siobhan Dowd's novel is a runaway success on stage. ★★★★
Alfred Hickling
theguardian.com
2013Excellent, vigorous delivery, brilliant timing; when the rigid Elvis gyrated to a classic, then snapped back into wheelchair paralysis.
Jeni Williams
theatre-wales.co.uk
2013A strong cast includes Robert Vernon as the lovable Beast. ★★★★
Elisabeth Mahoney
guardian.co.uk
2013At Hackney Empire, Robert Vernon as Cassio proved he must be a very good Ludovico when everyone's back on parade.
Michael Coveney
independent.co.uk
2013Vernon's portrayal is energetic, powerful and believable, you feel empathy for his unrelinquished love for Cathy.
Andy Howells
southwalesargus.co.uk
2013An astonishingly powerful Heathcliff; violent yet charismatic, bullying yet vulnerable. This is a Heathcliff who visibly affects every other character.
Victor Hallett
theatre-wales.co.uk
2013Vernon's brooding Heathcliff captures the complex, wild forces that make him so violent in everything he does.
