Chichester will know about mid June if the plays will be going out on tour.

So, the first results are in and it is a comprehensive win for Chichester. The Rupert Goold/Patrick Stewart Macbeth hailed as the greatest since the Nunn/McKellen one (in Telegraph) whereas the RSC one was amost universally panned.

So, on to the second leg with Twelfth Night later in the year .....

Is theatre a competition? There was I thinking it was an art.

That is because you are the only person who posts here who has never been on the Olivier Awards panel.

smile.gif Oh, we're talking awards.  Speaking of Chichester, I'm intrigued to see what the Mark Rylance Shakespeare authorship play (can't begin to remember its name) will be like.

I can't wait to see the Patrick Stewart Macbeth when it comes to London. The reviews have made me so indecently excited the only way I can think of to express my excitement is through the profligate use of exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jan Brock, have you seen the production?
He used to call me Blue Roses.

Troilus and Cressida is under rated; very much a play for today with its cynicism and the fall out of war for innocent victims.

Chichester's Macbeth has had brilliant reviews all round so 'spose we'll have to go and see it when it comes to London. Anyone know when that will be? We could do with a new look at Macbeth - I get bored with the usual mist and leather show.The most memorable Macbeth I have seen was one in German with Macbeth practising stabbing on a dead plucked chicken.

Yes.

You've got to hope that when it transfers to London it is not to Chichester's usual receiving house (Theatre Royal Haymarket) - it needs to be in an oppressively small space.

Maybe Trafalgar Studios? 1 or 2, depending on how oppressively small you mean?
God, I hope not to the TRH, both because of the size and because of how uncomfortable and expensive it is...

Right. But, have a look at the "Magnificent Maggie !" thread for an opposing view.
