Reviews for A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM:
‘In the role of Puck, Michael Guest is slyly sinuous and quicksilver’ (The Guardian*****)
‘A punk Puck (Michael Guest), blessed with limbs that bend in all directions, manages the remarkable feat for this spoken role, of prompting delight’ (The Observer****)
'Endlessly hyperactive, whether cavorting on the ground or launching into the air, Michael Guest sets up Puck’s disastrous interventions with cockily confident aplomb' (The Stage*****)
‘Michael Guest, a recent graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, lit up the stage every time Puck appeared’ (ScotsgayArts****)
