Storm in a Flower Vase, Arts Theatre, review - Telegraph
Unsurprisingly, the cast struggles. Christopher Ravenscroft’s fine performance in Strindberg’s Dances of Death earlier this year proved that he is adept at conveying simmering emotion, but as Shav he seems to have lost the will to live.

Theatre review: Dances of Death at Gate Theatre, Notting Hill
Howard Brenton has worked wonders with his new and at times radical version of a well-known classic.

Dances of Death - Reviews - 7 Jun 2013
Kurt is easily the most attractive character on the stage in Tom Littler's well marshalled production, and he's beautifully played by Christopher Ravenscroft as someone for whom no more news is ever going to be good.

The Stage / Reviews / Dances of Death
Plays from Noel Coward’s Private Lives to Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? have anatomised the desperate, verbally (and sometimes physically) violent game-playing of long-term relationships of mutual hostility. But Strindberg’s The Dance of Death, written in 1900, got there long before either of them, to provide a chilling, thrilling portrait of the dripping poison of marital hell.

Theatre review: Dances of Death, Gate, Notting Hill, London - Reviews - Theatre & Dance - The Independent
Brenton picks over the bones of each part faithfully, and particularly brings out the triangular nature of the tragedy in the figure of Edgar’s old friend, Kurt – here played with quivering sensitivity by Christopher Ravenscroft – who has arrived on the island as a quarantine officer only to be terrifyingly destroyed by Edgar as well.

News: Best Actor – Christopher Ravenscroft
But for his performance in Bolton Octagon’s revival of Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy, Christopher Ravenscroft played Arthur Winslow as a chronic arthritic with a caustic wit and fatherly sternness mixed with an absolute determination to see his cause through to the end, no matter how difficult that might be. A deeply convincing performance of very considerable stature and one which takes the award.

The Public Reviews » The Stepmother – Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond
Christopher Ravenscroft, as Eustace, gives us a vaudeville-style bad guy as he takes his deception to ever higher levels, justifying his actions in a way that suggests he really does believe it is the right and proper order of things. His actions and words invite the audience to hiss and laugh in equal measure, which they do, with every ooh, ahh and other expression of shock made audible in the intimate theatre setting.

Review: The Stepmother by Githa Sowbery | Richmond & Barnes Magazines: Richmond, East Sheen, Teddington, Petersham, St. Margarets, Twickenham, Hampton Hill, Kew and Barnes
Christopher Ravenscroft’s sparkling performance as the manipulating Eustace, squirming his way through the three acts offers fantastic value. But he needs to take care or a personal injury policy – because if Eustace’s family hasn’t rumbled him we have!

Good Grief, King's Theatre, Review | EdinburghGuide.com
These intimate scenes are performed with quiet, sympathetic reserve by Christopher Ravenscroft and the masterly sharp comedic tone of Ms Keith, as the couple drown their sorrows over a few pints of pale ale.

The Winslow Boy – review | Stage | The Guardian
Christopher Ravenscroft movingly suggests Mr Winslow's advancing frailty as his reserves of strength and money are devoured by the case; while his wife (Susan Sylvester) vacillates between distress at the ruinous cost and delight at the opportunity to update her wardrobe

Review: The Winslow Boy, Octagon Theatre, Bolton (From The Bolton News)
Christopher Ravenscroft’s depiction of Arthur inslow’s slow and painful physical breakdown over the course of the case is heartbreaking yet he also nails the older man’s sharp wit and keen brain...

Theatre review: The Winslow Boy at Octagon Theatre, Bolton
In the lead part of Arthur Winslow, Christopher Ravenscroft gives a remarkable performance of a man crippled by arthritis, obsessed with his cause but painfully aware of what it is doing to his family—but there are so many layers and subtle notes to his portrayal that it is impossible not to warm to this fully-rounded character.

The Conspirators – Orange Tree Theatre - The Good Review
The play is driven by an engine of older actors, all of whom have wonderful moments to shine. Christopher Ravenscroft’s, reasonable and ideologically superior Prosecutor is perhaps the highlight, he embodies a weariness and dissatisfaction which was wonderfully engaging.

The Conspirators, Orange Tree Rheatre, Richmond, Surrey - FT.com
Christopher Ravenscroft amusingly suggests the contortions of conscience through which Dykl puts himself and Paul Gilmore is funny as the vain and ineffectual Major Ofir.

THE CONSPIRATORS To 1 October. :: ReviewsGate.com :: The Theatre Reviews site that covers the UK.
Ultimately, Havel’s warning/message seems to be, as with the pre-Hitler Weimar Republic, democracy’s extreme vulnerability - be it due to personal agendas, misanthropic malevolence or even cool legal calculation as embodied in Christopher Ravenscroft’s superb State Prosecutor, himself not adverse to a spot of spanking. Would you trust democracy in these hands? Hardly.
