The RSC has a hit on its hands with a revival of the Restoration comedy by Aphra Behn, the extraordinary playwright who predated the current glut of female writers in theatre by several hundred years. Loveday Ingram had all but disappeared as a director yet returns in triumph with a production that’s irresistibly entertaining as it follows a group of English cavaliers, led by Joseph Millson’s charming bounder Willmore, who find fun at the Naples carnival while in exile during the Cromwell period.

Steven Berkoff had some kind words to say about Joseph recently.

However, there are some actors like Joseph Millson (currently in The Rover at Stratford), Jonathan Hyde and Mark Strong who are daring, brave and audacious.
