"Dennis Henry plays Silvius with such enormous, placid incomprehension that he owns some of the funniest moments of the play."

playshakespeare.com
Michael Miegs

"His Polonius was a bumbling senex and he delivers his rambling, long-winded lines in such a way as to keep the audience laughing throughout the first two acts."

Shakespeare Bulletin
Cameron Hunt

"God of Carnage... hysterically funny, ensemble comedy with a diamond-sharp cast... {including} the appealing Dennis Henry."

 

 


Lincoln Journal-Star
Elizabeth Govaerts

"Not to be missed are the breath taking antics of  Dennis Henry as the Duke of Aragon."
