Rather good this one:

New Nick Payne play, though no James Corden is seems.
The Same Deep Water as Me, with Monica Dolan, Peter Forbes, Joanna Griffin, Nigel Lindsay, Daniel Mays and Niky Wardley. Director John Crowley.

Then Arnold Wesker's Roots, starring the wonderful Jessica Raine, alongside Linda Bassett, Michael Jibson, and Emma Stansfield. Director James Macdonald.

Then finally Josie Rourke directs Coriolanus, with Tom Hiddleston and Mark Gatiss.

Excited all round...but trepidation at the impact the combination of HIddleson/Gatiss will have on the fans attending that one!

Any clue at all what part Gatiss will play ? Can't think of anything at all suitable.

Much more interesting sounding season. Excited enough to put the booking date in my calendar.

Anyone else a little miffed that the Barclays Front Row £10 seats have been sneakily moved to the back 2 rows of the side circle - seats that would cost £10 in previews and only £15 in the main run anyway. Seems a bit naughty to me, particularly given the whole scheme was sold on a "best seats for a bargain price" tagline only a year ago.

I wondered if that was right or if they had the yellow and blue mixed up.

Looks deliberate to me since there are no blue seats in the stalls.

I can see why they've done this but perhaps they need to rename the scheme to Barclays Back Two Rows.
