Saw this on Monday and I've been thinking about it since then and the more I think about it, the more I realise just how great it is. Great play and a great cast. As noted it is the community centre that really makes this so good, it feels so real and natural, you totally forget you're watching a play in those two hours and feel like you're watching someone's therapy, which in a way you are. I've raved on my blog if interested: http://thegreatestof...sformation.html

Also means I now know where Haggerston is! Centre easy to find when following the directions they email you and signs point you to the right entrance. Got my £10 Monday ticket at 9am on the Royal Court website and they were still available an hour later, although think it'll be more of a scramble after press night. There's a few tickets left for Friday as I type this.

If you have a ticket, I recommend that you don't read any reviews (or comments here) because you'll enjoy this and get tangled up in it much more if you don't know what's coming and respond naturally yourself to the characters, classes and breaks. I've regularly attended a class which was similar in many respects, which added an extra dimension for me.

I caught a bus to Essex Road (Northchurch Road stop) and then enjoyed a 12-minute stroll along Northchurch Road through the time-warped de Beauvoir Town, with a right turn at the church to reach Rose Lipman.

I'm tempted to agree with you.
I've been thinking about this for almost a week now.

I stumbled on this in New York
Went twice
It was lovely
And I kept thinking about it
Simple and effective very effective

I’ve managed to nab a ticket for tomorrow and couldn’t be happier.  A couple of questions for people who’ve been.
1) Are there restaurants/cafes nearby that aren’t too expensive?
2) How hot will it be inside the building?  Temperature’s been on my mind a lot these past few days.  Just so I know how to dress.

I went last night and I found the temperature OK.  It was warm, but no worse than many other places.  They have done everything they can to make it bearable, with a jug of iced water & cups on hand as you enter the auditorium and they even allow you to leave your seat via a back door if you need to & re-enter, but I didn't notice anyone doing so. I would recommend dressing for comfort.  I wore shorts & short-sleeved shirt - not how I usually dress for the theatre but I was very glad I did!  There's a bar at the venue - usual RC prices.  There's a diner style place on the short walk from the o/ground station to the venue that was packed with trendy young folk, but didn't notice much else.  Enjoy!
