^Polar Bears was more watch-able than this. And yes, the interval comes about an hour and a half in! Enjoy!

Lynette, it's a million times better than Polar Bears. It's ambitious and interesting and features some great performances. Get there in time to read the programme beforehand if you can.

I've always thought there was a certain level of informal collusion between the reviewers and the subsidized theatres: "go easy on us because it's hard enough getting people here in anyway". This seems to be especially true for big shows in the biggest auditoria.

I think most people either knock two stars off the review itself to get a truer idea of what's in store or just look at the personnel involved and come to a judgement.

I'm just glad I saw this on a freebie. That I paid for it through my taxes is bad enough, to pay for it again would have added insult to injury.

Hi all,

Am pondering going to see.

Is it lots of fighting/guns/loud crashes or is it more speaking drama.

recommend it?

Not much fighting/guns/loud crashes.

Lots of speaking.

Recommended if you're motivated - not an especially easy ride.

Guest, I would do yourself a favour and not bother. It is a terrible play.

All My Sons is fantastic, would go see it 10 times more rather than seeing this again.

I can't really help you decide between 39 Steps and this, since I really hated 39 steps also.
