Having seen both I'd go for Hedda too but I thought Jumpy was much better than ok.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Saw Jumpy, thought it was ok. Not revolutionary...amusing, quite good fun but as a middle aged mother  of teenage daughters I didn't really feel it "spoke to me"! I am really looking forward to Hedda with Sheridan....
Yes, I get you. Ha ha
To be honest not an original play; a touch of God of Carnage and a bit of Alan Ayckbourn and then a splodge of That Face... But Tamsin Grieg a joy and rapidly becoming one of our treasures.

ok - final post of the morning and then I'll get some work done.  totally agree with Latecomer and Lynette.  not necessarily revolutionary or, indeed, original but Tamin Greig upped the ante enough to make it more than worth the time and money.  the 'burlesque' scene was, however, cringeworthy in all the wrong ways....

What's the day seat queue been like recently? I've been slow so still need to try and see this is it's last week!
