Along with a three-star accolade, Patrick Marmion for The Daily Mail wrote of Cush: âJumbo has to wear the show for three hours, and pretty much does it with a thoughtful, magnetic and generally vigorous performanceâ¦
âNo question of making Hamlet a princess. Rather, she looks like a disgruntled teenager, wearing loose jeans, a leather jacket and a shaved head …

There is also tenderness in her performance, as well as a sense of guilt over the collateral damage done to Ophelia during Hamlet’s long mission to get revenge on Uncle Claudius, played by Adrian Dunbar, who has murdered his father (whom Ghost is also played by Dunbar) and married his mother.
Meanwhile, The Times – also awarding a three-star review – saw Clive Davis’ pen: âEverything revolves, naturally, around the performance of Jumboâ¦
âIt is striking that the question of gender seems irrelevant as soon as he arrives on stage. Tall and shaved, it delivers what one could describe as a non-binary hamlet for our time â.
