"Sheetal Kapoor as Puck captivated us with subtle, sly, ironic humour backed with huge, almost preternatural physical energy" - A Midsummer Night's Dream - Royale Gazette

 

"The show is a little stolen by the young, eager, doomed Pupil - Sheetal Kapoor, whose mobile face and quivering physical presence were absolutely exceptional, fascinating performances" - The LessonTheatre Box

"Kapoor is wonderfully exuberant, brimming with childlike innocence and a thirst for learning, complemented with a pinafore and braid. the shocking end, which she then makes disturbingly realistic, is a real testament to her versatility" - The Lesson - View from the Gods
