The Stage ★★★★ "Andy McLeod excels as the stubborn but irresistible dancing Dave."

Love's Labour's Lost, Oxford

Christopher appeared as Holofernes in the Oxford Shakespeare Company's adaptation of Love's Labour's Lost.

The Telegraph critic's choice: "A delightful staging of Shakespeare's comedy, in which the King of Navarre's study is kiboshed by the Princess of France and her retinue.  Nicholas Green's sharply paced, very funny production, places the action in a quasi-Seventies setting, complete with flared-trousers, guitar-strumming and winks to the bra-burners.  A hoot." - Dominic Cavendish

Evening Standard: "The stand-out scene has a comic character shimmying onto the dancefloor and laying claim to someone we assumed was off-limits.  The ensuing embrace provides one of two revelations concerning modern sexual mores."

 

Thomas Judd

 

Love's Labour's Lost, Oxford

Thomas appeared as Costard in the Oxford Shakespeare Company's adaptation of Love's Labour's Lost.

The Telegraph critic's choice - Dominic Cavendish

The Oxford Times ★★★★  "Meanwhile, there is more low-life letching as the clown Costard (hilariously presented by Thomas Judd) and a preposterous Spaniard Don Armado compete for the affections of the sluttish Jaquanetta."
