Just watching the interview on Graham Norton - in context it's clear she's not beng entirely serious

Graham Norton's comments on the theatre were very entertaining - he said his heart normally sinks when someone is on to talk about their new play because it always about "someone coming to terms with some sh*t, and its all set in one room"

She was great on Norton last night and he was so funny as usual, and his comments on theatre (we know he loves theatre) were spot on. I sometimes feel like that myself

Never thought of name dropping that way, thanks. Looking forward to a few surprised faces.

Has no one else seen this yet? Is there another thread that I'm just missing?

Anyhow, not much to say except that I thought it was very disappointing, stagey and artificial. All that seemed to happen for 90 minutes was the two leads telling each other that real life isn't Wonderland / Neverland when we rather knew that already. Both have their moments, principally when talking about the war, but otherwise largely seemed underserved by a play without much to say. I'm afraid I thought the set looked cheap and the supporting cast were rather one-dimensional and shouty. Didn't really feel Grandagesque at all. Given that I always disagree with the critics, expect rave reviews.
