(Jessica Hopkins’s interview appeared in the Guardian, 4/1.)

Performed by Toneelgroep Amsterdam in Dutch, and directed by the brilliant Ivo van Hove, this was an amazing show. Coriolanus, Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra were combined in brilliantly edited versions in what became a six-hour show with no intervals. It seems rather austere to watch six hours of Shakespeare in a language you don't understand but it was thrilling and incredibly accessible.
