“The main newcomers…Ben Mansfield replacing Oliver Chris as assistant police commissioner Donald Doyle Davidson, a brilliant foil to the ongoing ridiculousness of his boss, superbly played by Aaron Neil.” - Mark Shenton (

“Fresh out of drama school, and straight into the role that made Rex Harrison’s name, Ben Mansfield finds all that is suave and stylish in Alan, bringing a saving joie de vivre to the character’s more savage bon mots. He is immensely physically funny when buckling under the pressure of the arch-temptress’s advances, clinging on to the nearest bookcase for dear life. After all these years, French Without Tears retains an evergreen power to charm.” - Dominic Cavendish (Daily Telegraph)

“The revelation of the piece is recent Bristol Old Vic graduate, Ben Mansfield, in his first professional role as the Hon Alan Howard. Alan is the linchpin of the play and it was a daring move to cast a newcomer in the part. But with his tall, dark and handsome looks, and some wonderfully dry comic timing, Mansfield is one to watch - probably from your living room sofa in the BBC’s next lavish period drama.” - Nancy Groves (Richmond and Twickenham Times)

“Ben Mansfield’s performance as the caustic Alan is admirably assured for his debut professional engagement.” - Neil Dowden (What’s on Stage)

“Ben Mansfield as Alan allows a touch of the tortured artist to slip through his veneer of aloof cynicism in a performance so assured it is hard to believe this is his first professional engagement.” - Graham Gurrin (The Stage)

“The would-be detached and cynical Alan (a strong performance by Ben Mansfield) clearly stands for Rattigan himself. French Without Tears is more than a document of its time. More importantly, its comedy still makes people laugh.” - Terry Grimley (Birmingham Post)

“Our hero here is the Hon. Alan Howard, performed with total conviction, superb stage presence, complete command of the character’s attitude and emotions, I assumed this to be a seasoned and experienced actor. Not so! This is Ben Mansfield making his professional debut - I expect him to go far!” - Sheila Connor (The British Theatre Guide)

“Ben Mansfield, making his professional stage debut, is brilliant as would-be writer Alan - the scenes in which Diana tells him he is the true object of her affection, and he almost doubles-up in terror, are superbly performed.” - Natasha Tripney (Music

“As noblemen returned from war to a hotbed of romance and gossip, Claudio (a superb Ben Mansfield) immediately falls for the lovely Hero.” - Kat Brown (The London Paper)

“Ben Mansfield brings real depth to Claudio, who has so many moods to manage as he first catches the eye of an attractive girl with a fortune, then is gullible enough to jilt her on hearsay and finally, humbly, admits his error.” - Susan Elkin (The Stage)

“Ben Mansfield is a dashing Claudio.” - Michael Coveney (The Independent)

“Ben Mansfield and Daniel Ings nail the hammy asides of the cocksure men…” - Matt Trueman (Time Out London)

“Ben Mansfield is also superb as Rachel’s true love.” - Mark Shenton (The Stage)

“There are great performances too from Ben Mansfield…” - Terri Paddock (

“There’s a dead gangster, cross dressing and the most cherishable posh boy imaginable (full marks to Ben Mansfield)...” - Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A wonderfully vibrant and well-rounded turn from Ben Mansfield.” - Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
