Other delights in this exemplary production include Oliver Cotton’s rugged Agamemnon, Roger Allam’s pedantic/bombastic Ulysses, and Denis Quilley’s hoary Nestor.

Roger Allam s Ulysses simply can’t be ignored. Allam portrays a flesh and blood man, a mover and shaker, part Machiavelli and part actor – this is consummate Shakespearean acting.
