Normal - Styx Space
"Richard Ede is a mesmerising and petulant serial killer. He exudes confidence and is counter-intuitively attractive, despite his spine-tingling accounts of murder and rape."
Marianna Meloni (Everything Theatre)
"Richard Ede’s portrayal of the “Ripper” jumps from composed, well dressed intellectual to aggressive, seething animal with such ferocity that the audience never know where they are with him, let alone the characters sharing his story. His towering presence, coupled with the use of body language and subtle flickers of eye contact and changes in facial expression, perfectly convey the monstrous nature of the character."
"Richard Ede gives Kurten a brisk and commanding energy, his façade of rationality barely concealing his infantile desperation to shock."
Dave Fargnoli (The Stage)
".. the most charismatic character on stage."
Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)
It's A Wonderful Life - Farnham Maltings
"Richard Ede in the role of Mr. Nice Guy, George Bailey, was quite magnificent. It would have taken a hard heart indeed not to be completely won over by his energetic, charismatic performance."
(The Fine Times Recorder)
"Richard Ede who had knocked my socks off in The 39 Steps plays the Stewart role. His George Bailey is no less compelling; Ede marries the credibility of Jimmy Stewart with the energy of Jim Carrey, in a magnetic performance that wins us over instantly and has us rooting for big-hearted, decent everyman George from the start."
(William Stafford - BUM ON A SEAT)
The Ruling Class
"In [the play's] centre stands an uncontested Richard Ede as Jack..."
(Mark Gründig - Culture Freak)
"Richard Ede gives it an agile sex appeal with which he could also tackle Frank'n'Furter from the "Rocky Horror Show"... he manages to brilliantly incorporate the ticks of the Earl in his speech, as if you were tuning in a radio."
(Echo Online - Germany)
The 39 Steps
"In Richard Ede [The 39 Steps] has a truly outstanding Hannay."
(Joyce McMillan - The Scotsman)
"Richard Ede delivers a perfect caricature of the dashing English hero: part Bertie Wooster, part James Bond."
(Rich Lee - The Guide to Surrey)
"Richard Ede is the perfect fit for the dashing, upright Richard Hannay..."
(Charles Hutchinson - York Press)
"Richard Ede couldn't have given a more convincing showing in the likeable role of Hannay, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats."
(Joel Holt - Salisbury Journal)
"Hannay (Richard Ede) is excellent as the suave upper-middle class hero so typical of British films of the 1930s and 40s..."
(Richard Edmondson - Northampton Chronicle)
"Richard Ede as Hannay, the main character, manages to look like and convince as the sort of Englishman that perhaps never really existed but we sorely hope actually did. He is effortless and charming and definitely one to watch for the future."
(Paul Tyree - UK Theatre Network)
"Richard Ede perfectly encapsulates the charming protagonist, Richard Hannay."
(Rob Holcroft - Live Theatre)
"Richard Hannay, man of mystery, master of disguise, dashed decent British gent right down to his single malt... and in the guise of actor Richard Ede probably the funniest man on the planet."
(John Phillpott - Worcester News)
"Richard Ede provides everything you want to see in a hero."
(Nicholas Carding - Newark Advertiser)
Much Ado About Nothing
"Particularly lasting impression was made by the enthusiasm of the whole ensemble, led by Natalia Campbell as quick-witted Beatrice and Richard Ede as agile and fun-loving Benedick"
(Ralf Kapr, Mindener - Tageblatt: Germany)
"The magnificent backdrop of the castle of Sigmaringen and the expressive play of the actors who take on multiple roles, sing and make music, with very few props. Especially entertaining and amusing was the banter of Natalia Campbell and Richard Ede, as the teasing couple Beatrice and Benedick."
(Isabell Michelberger, Südkurier - Germany)
"Richard Ede was a commanding prescence as Cassio."
(City Weekend: Beijing)
"Another delight was the exciting performances by the actors...shifting seamlessly from one character to the next... It was difficult to reconcile the guttural voice of the Ghost with Hamlet's ever-loyal and steadfast companion, both played by Richard Ede."
(The Flying Inkpot - Singapore)
Romeo and Juliet
"Capulet's servant - Richard Ede had members of the audience roaring with laughter on opening night in Ho Chi Minh City."
