The other is called Hedda Gabler, so it could be the tale of a roofer with a passion for football. I think you've got quite a good strategy, sticking loyally to theatres that have served you well on your previous attendances.

Kiss Me Kate - I believe it charts the rise, fall and rise again of the royal romance through the tunes of Richard Clayderman.
Saw this today and found it really interesting - though I probably would have found it equally interesting as a lecture. Agree that it isn't very dramatic and it didn't conjure up time and place particularly evocatively, but it was well acted and didn't drag.

That would be The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. I imagine most of the audience would have worked out it wasn't another comedy...Plus, isn't there a lost play it's supposedly based on?
There's a difference between knowing little and not knowing anything at all but perhaps that's just me. I don't want to know the whole plot but I'd be very unlikely to see a play unless I know the basic subject matter except on occasions when I've been corralled in amdram by someone involved. But I wouln't pay WE prices without a bit of research (well, I'd book for anything with SRB but I'd still know what it was about before I went)

But the kid doesn't pay for the ticket I'm not talking about knowing every plot twist but I'd probably tell the kid that the play was about horses in a war or something like that. I'm just surprised anyone would book a play they know nothing about (especially as the Old Vic name isn't exactly a guarentee of quality )

I have actually . I booked for both the Cottesloe Mike Leigh plays too (which has rather put me off complete surprises ) I don't want to know everything about a play, of course not. I just wouldn't go to see a play I knew absolutely nothing about and then be surprised that it wasn't the light-hearted affair I expected.
