I know this only started previewing last night, but has anyone seen it yet, or booked to do so?  I admit I succumbed to the bargain offer for the first three nights, but I've enjoyed Steve Waters' previous plays.  Just such a pain that plays in the downstairs auditorium always start so horribly late - if they have to stagger the start times, why not 15 mins before the main house, not after?

That's interesting, as Hampstead Theatre tweeted yesterday that they'd have something of interest today, but I haven't received anything whatsoever - though maybe yours didn't come from them?    The deal I used was for £5 tickets quoting "FIVER", should anyone be interested - but only for this week, i.e. Thurs - Sat.

Mine was an email from Hampstead - it's actually £12 for the two shows. So you still got a better deal :)

Is there really no-one else who has seen this yet, or are people hesitating to comment?  I've seen some favourable remarks on Twitter, but I agree with a blogger who said it reduced the writer to swivel-eyed boredom after 15 minutes.

I shall post as usual, but wonder what becomes of those others who say they are seeing a production, then turn taciturn? For instance (off-topic, I know - apologies), I am sure I am not still the only one to have seen Ignorance. And I didn't even damn it as much as I felt it deserved...

I'd be astonished if anyone posts about every show that they attend. Surely each individual has a different set of reasons for posting. Some like to "damn", perhaps with the kindly-meant intention of warning off people who are considering also going. Some like to encourage a conversation which features various opinions from various perspectives. Some prefer not to "damn" because it can appear destructive.
