All the comedies would work - that old Comedy of Errors circa '77 is stll the best but yes, if trags then you've nailed it. I look forward 2013 Xmas Grandage offering.

I missed the £25 tickets so will be hoping to see it on a Monday. How will this 'special outreach scheme' work, I wonder? The schools bit I get - pitch up at a comp in Lambeth and give a bunch to the English teacher. But how do you target first-time theatregoers? And how can I disguise myself as one so that I am reached out to?

It's ok...you just have to be quick on the internet. I liked that Grandage thought all his £10 tickets were snapped up by "new people" as twitter was all of a buzz. Poor deluded fool. Still, who cares if they are deluded as long as we get the tickets. :lol:

Jamie Lloyd is one of those curious directors who continue to get work all over the place despite being never more than adequate. He must be well-connected. The Peter Gill de nos jours.

I don't agree. I've seen a lot of his work (Inadmissable Evidence, Piaf, Passion, Polar Bears, concert of Company, Duchess of Malfi, She Stoops To Conquer, Little Dog Laughed & Three Days of Rain). I've generally been impressed with the productions.

Perhaps because his productions don't have a recognisable signature, general audiences can't identify his achievements. The same applies to many highly rated actors who presumably are a dream to work with, in rehearsal and performance, but who don't stand out in a way which is noticeable to the general public.

Inadmissible Evidence was wonderful because of Douglas Hodge, but I don't believe that Lloyd had no part to play in that.  And I loved She Stoops a little bit irrationally, but it'll still be in my top few of the year, because it appealed to me on some sort of almost childish, simple level, and I felt served the play - Goldsmith only wanted to entertain, after all...  His Cyrano, with Hodge, on Broadway got rave reviews, and I can imagine that being his sort of show.  Given that there was talk about that transferring briefly before Charlie, I wonder if that'll be one of the other three plays in Lloyd's little season, but somehow I doubt it.
