Ritual in Blood, by Steven Berkoff, World Premiere
Nottingham Playhouse

‘A coup for Nottingham Playhouse, as Timothy Walker directs the world premiere of a new play by Steven Berkoff. Berkoff turns dry chronicle into well-lubricated drama in a way that directly courts comparison with Shakespeare. Walker‘s dark, stark production masterfully marshals a massive cast assigned to multiple roles in a multi dimensional drama of great intellect and style.’
The Guardian

‘Timothy Walker’s impressive, sculptural staging …’
The Sunday Times

‘Impressively directed by Timothy Walker …’
The Times

‘Yielding tremendously strong performances … Walker uses the full depth of the stage to create some haunting tableaux.’
The Stage

‘Timothy Walker’s directing is superb.’
Lincolnshire Echo

‘Walker utilises the theatre to its full potential. Hugely effective.’
Burton Mail

“Steven Berkoff’s brilliant and uncompromising historical drama about the persecution of Jews in 13th Century Lincoln is gripping and disturbing stuff in this world premiere directed by Timothy Walker and played out by over twenty actors against a black background slashed with red. … a play bristling with lessons from history and resonances for our time.’
