Part of the fun at the Donmar is seeing the audience, isn't it? Once Neil Kinnock and Glenys were just down the row from us. When we went to Voyage Round My Father, John Mortimer was opposite us. Suddenly it became meta-theatre.

I thought it was a stupendous production in every way. For years I've always felt, even with the well done Ibsens, that they're just a little bit dull and I find myself admiring rather than being involved. Not this time. Partly thanks to the terrific new translation and the pacing of it all, I found the whole thing engrossing- a domestic drama spilling later into a bigger theme rather than the Epic which I remembered from seeing Richard Eyre's production at the National ten years ago. I thought this was just wonderful. The only Ibsen I'd see again!
Anyway, well done to all involved. As ever, Grandage, Austin and Cork on top form.
