Hasn't he now done three Chekhov's in a row ? (And an Ibsen before that ?). He is a leading actor (an RSC Henry V) and we are lucky he is still willing to work in smaller venues - he is like Michael Pennington in that respsect.

I was wrong on the three Chekovs, confusing him with Sam Troughton on one of them for some reason. Glenn's website is reasonably good in listing his work which is somewhat unusual as far as I can see. McKellen's is not bad in it's own ramshackle way. Which actor has the best website ?

Very different seating/stage layout from the last time I went - steeply raked seating, so good views, and a slightly 'thrust' stage, like a much smaller Olivier...

Lovely lighting, liked the interweaved stories. A bit "Chekhov by numbers" but still very enjoyable. Spent ages trying to remember where the servant on the roof was from....A Fish Called Wanda!
Liked the ending.
Greig and Glen very fine.
Grass real. Was in row B and was confused as I thought I had ordered front row....but B was front row!
Nice to bump into Kenneth Branagh on the way out.
All in all a fine production and a lovely way to spend an afternoon!
