The Independant on Sunday – 4/5

Ashley Smith as the ideal (and idealised) partner, Solveig.

The Guardian – 4/5

In Hill’s production, these final scenes are as deeply moving as ever. When Ashley Smith’s tender, bespectacled Solveig cradles both the young and old Peers in her lap and quietly sings “sleep, my boy, sleep”, you realise Ibsen’s play is an exploration of the Oedipus complex.

This is London – 3/5 | This is London readers – 3.5/5

A wholesome turn from Ashley Smith as rejected dream-girl, Solveig.

Music OMH – 5/5

Ashley Smith is a touchingly faithful Solveig.

What’s On Stage – 4/5
