The Malcontent Sam Wanamaker Th

4* for effort. I think one or two of the children could have used a bit more voice training for audibility. Some swallowing of words made a few parts tedious to follow. No names no pack drill and it would be cruel and silly to criticise.
Odd play. V simple really. I was wondering about all the references to faith etc. - more powerful at the time maybe? Lots of fun espesh second half which was more relaxed and opened with cracking little song routine worthy of the best West End show. Seeds of future satirical restoration plays and some fab similes make this a curiosity but maybe not a classic.

Just home from the recording of the last episode of Cabin Pressure. It was excellent and probably out at Xmas. Obviously my lips are sealed.
Apparently 22,000 people or so applied for tix....

Benedict Cumberbatch surrounded by fans at end of show and many more waiting outside. Sweet.

Just sharing.

Can hardly breathe with excitment.

September 14 - March 15
in Stratford-upon-Avon

Love's Labour's Lost
Christopher Luscombe sets Shakespeare's sparkling comedy in the summer of 1914, directing one acting company in Love's Labour's Lost and it's matching comedy Love's Labour's Won.
Love's Labour's Won
Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, the second of this pair of comedies plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passion runs riot and happiness is threatened - before peace ultimately wins out.
The Christmas Truce
Inspired by real events in the trenches of the Great War exactly 100 years ago, RSC Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman directs Phil Porter's uplifting new play for families that celebrates a remarkable Christmas story.
The Witch of Edmonton
RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran directs the final production in the Roaring Girls season, with Eileen Atkins returning to the Company in the lead role.
The Shoemaker's Holiday
Rowland Lacy loves Rose Oatley but it's not going to work out. An aristocrat and a middle class girl aren't supposed to marry, not least because Rowland is a very bad boy. Phillip Breen directs Dekker's glorious city comedy.
Tom Morton-Smith's new play takes us into the heart of the Manhattan project, exploring the creation of the atomic bomb and the devastating impact of scientific advances which shape our understanding of the universe.
The White Devil - season extended
We are extending the season of our Summer 14 production of The White Devil.
Midsummer Mischief
This Summer we are producing a festival of exciting new plays, in a purpose-built temporary studio on the current Courtyard Theatre stage. The festival is led by our Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman.

Scuse me for asking but what is this trilogy mysteriously on the west end guide here? In the Olivier?
