It was clear that the cast only had one weeks rehearsal (Paul B had to resort to carrying round his script for half of the show) but some very clever and smart staging/direction alongside a script that has heaps of potential. It felt rough around the ages still and may need some thinkering around but seeing that its only on show for 1 week, i'm not sure what they can do at this stage!!
Dress Circle was only half full so not surprised at the sale.
Did anyone watch the surprise theatre tonight? What was it on?

I still think this is potentially a wonderful initiative - combining the resurrection of the derided, compromised and nostalgically recollected english stage tradition of Weekly Rep with the innovative and forward-looking English Stage Company tradition of presenting new work by new writers. I'm going in the latter half of each week, with a supportive mindset.

Re: Jonjo..he was the character that was crazy wasn't he?

Yes, Jonjo O'Neill's character is Lado, sewer of buttons and full of wind. I wonder if it's significant that the Georgian Prime Minister at the time of the Russian assault of August 2008 was Lado Gurgenidze.

Annoying staging - lengthy scenes at the extreme side of the stage turned my top price circle seat (reduced in offer) into restricted view
Overall enjoyed it with reservations.
Emptiest I've ever seen the place!
Anyone done the headphone plays?
