It's the best performance I've seen Antony Sher give. In fact, the whole cast are excellent. And the play is too, for the most part. Act One very cleverly balances farce with heavyweight psychological analysis and ultimately tragedy. One moment we're laughing, the next we're hanging on Lydia Wilson's every word. Act Two takes a more surreal turn, and whilst Lez Brotherston's design produces a real coup de theatre, it takes things a bit too far, including one image which I'll struggle to get out of my mind for a while......
