Good show though!

When this Autumn's Hampstead season was announced, I originally was going to book for nothing. I'm now going/have gone to at least 2/3 of the main house shows....

Agree - avoid the second row on either side. I'd say sit downstairs, three rows back or more.

Not sure about the costume choice...bit too obvious?
Loved Gatiss despite his rather here and there accent...and thought Henshall was very good.
Annoying staging for first row in the trial scene as they line people up in front of you....you end up peeping round the cast to see Charles!
Still, very enjoyable and glad I went...second half much stronger than first and never dull.
Great lunch, by the way, at http://www.belsizekitchen.co.uk/ about 5/10mins away. Splendid! Beth and I put the world to rights! Highly recommended!

I'm baffled by the auditorium configuration for this. It didn't add to the production, and the parliamentary scenes could have been staged much more effectively by having benches of MPs at the back of a traditional stage, Charles to one side, the judge/prosecution on the other, and treating the audience as the rest of the MPs.
In summary, not bad, exactly, but rather disappointing.

Good point about the women. You see so many male dominated plays like this.
By the way , this is covered in this next 'As Yet Unnamed London Theatre Podcast' along with The River and You Can Still Make A Killing.
