A review can vary from a short assessment of a production to a full discussion of its aims, setting, costumes and acting. In general, visitors to the site will want to know something about the quality of the production and any issues it raises or deals with in the context of Shakespearean performance in general, the play in particular, and the immediate context (social and political) that informs the production.
