Well this sounds like a car crash to rival Troilus and Cressida. The curse of the World Shakespeare Festival continues, by the sound of it!

From noted arts journalist Quentin Letts in noted arts journal The Daily Mail.  I wonder what effect it's having on house prices?

Thanks for the heads up, anyway: I'm going to book for it.  Katy Stephens is in it, too, which can only be a good thing.

Will be interested to hear how it is - Billers makes it sound interesting but the dates don't work for me

Booked for early next week.  I'll be sure to report back.  "Contains nudity, violence and scenes of a sexual nature" is promising, but it's a sign of my age that "1hr 40m with no interval", which means that I'll be home by half nine, is more appealing...

The Old Rep, Birmingham run ends on 15 September but the tour includes a further UK date at the Barbican Theatre, London from 6 - 10 November.

There's currently (also until 15 Sep) even more international collaboration London 2012 theatrical forest action in an actual forest: http://nationaltheat...rformance/ntw22

Totally mad play, although Katy Stephens does look great in her underwear
