Back, did you see her Pericles at the Globe a couple of years back? That was pretty good, I thought, even after they had to replace Corin Redgrave at short notice.

No I didn't - ah, so that was the Redgrave illness incident? He was in a really bad way for a while, as I recall. That would be after I'd decided to stop visiting the Globe. Well, perhaps I shouldn't so hastily consign her to the 'think twice' file.

Seeing Redgrave in my 2nd visit to the Jermyn next month, in Trumbo. I'm not a major fan of Redgrave, but the play combines two subjects of interest to me - Dalton Trumbo, and the McCarthy blacklists.
