Pride and Prejudice
George Haynes…steals the show. Haynes portrays his array of characters with comic intensity; his Mr Bingley is grinning and enthusiastic; Mr Wickham sleazy and swaggering; and Mr Collins simply ridiculous – as he should be
…George Haynes in particular demonstrating his skills of diversity, alternating between the gentlemanly Edgar Linton, the bullied Linton Heathcliff, the gruff Joseph and the gentle Hareton with ease…his performance of a range of contrasting roles is a highlight – it really does feel as if there are a greater number of characters on stage, such is Haynes’ power to convince
