Add to his great plays "A View from the Bridge", and to his good ones "After the Fall", "The Price" and "The Man WHo Had All The Luck". Even lesser works like "The American Clock" are worthwhile.

Sher excellent - and I like that he does out of west end stuff. Not many places you can find this kind of quality in the outskirts! Bravo Tricycle. I've yet to see a total dud there.

You're probably right, but I was far more engaged with it than with All My Sons.
My first trip to the Tricycle and what a charming place. But I don't understand why this started at 8 rather than 7.30 or 7.45 (well I suspect it's because it's in Kilburn and not close to a tube station). The 10.30 finish meant I had to catch the "drunk" train home.

One mobile phone went off four times (on "silent" - that is to say it went "bzzzzzzzzzzzz" very audibly) during the matinee yesterday, and someone else's bleeped literally every five minutes because it needed charging. Neither person thought to switch their phone off at any point, including the interval. And then, literally fifteen seconds before the end, the person in front of me's phone rang (properly, not on "silent"). I don't want to spoil the ending for anyone who hasn't seen it, as it's a very strking and (should be) effective moment, but I'm sure those that have will understand how a full-blast Nokia tune would (and did) completely ruin the moment.
But apart from that, I'm glad I saw it even though I didn't find the produciton totally satisfying. I'm really struggling to figure out exactly why - certainly not the acting, and I don't think it was the play itself - but something about it just didn't quite click with me. Antony Sher was superb in making a very dull man into a fascinating leading role (not a criticism of the writing at all, just the way the character is supposed to be). Agreed that Nigel Lindsay and Lucy Cohu were also superb, as was the whole cast really.
Plus of course there was the usual Tricycle fun of trying to find the one seat that doesn't have a bum or a reserved sign on it.

I suspect the late start has something to do with the cinema in the complex which seemed to start earlier when I was there.
