Thank you Moose, glad it's not just me. I read somewhere that the ending has been changed in this adaptation, that is without wanting to give anything way for anyone who hasn't seen it what the father does is an addition. So not sure how it would normally end, whether the exists would be the same just for different or more general reasons. Sorry, that's a bit vague if you haven't seen it.

Hi,

I was wondering if anybody could tell me how early I would have to queue to get 1 or 2 Day seats for this, if the NT have day seats for Saturday Matinee or evening performances, and how much they cost?

I meant to see this ages ago, but kept forgetting.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Yeah, that's what I thought he meant by 'dismount' as well. I didn't notice it at all so I guess she has made it less obvious since you saw it Amo!


It would be hard not to have got smoother - i saw the first preview! Also, it wasn't really a complaint - loved the whole thing, and that was genuinely the only negative point i could think of. PS - i am not a "he"!! smile.gif

It was great, and is practically sold out, so there IS an audience for this type of play.

And for Hamlet and quite a few other plays we could mention.

Poor old Peggs, but I know what you mean. I have friends who only like something funny. But thankfully I have friends who love a good old chew through life's darker times. I enjoyed Philistines very much, the performances were very good, the set interesting and engaging to have in front of you - the Lyttleton is going for these stretched out jobs these days now. It isn't Chekhov but worth an outing. Rory Kinnear the one to watch ..again.
