Mr Houston did perform - it was a Wednesday matinee and someone came on and said it was only his second performance and he had stepped in so could we be understanding etc.

He was decent in the part although he needed numerous numbers of line prompts from the side of the stage - I assumed it would be ironed out given a few more performance.

The play is excellent, and I would encourage anyone to go if they can whoever is in the lead role.  Despite the increasingly annoying word 'line' from Houston, it didn't really spoil my appreciation of the play.

I enjoyed the somewhat antiquated philosophical discussions which increasingly brought into view the contrast between their own concerns and the more pressing ones of those outside.  

Overall, I found it well paced, engrossing with a well executed last five minutes.  

I find the comments about very interesting as I find Chekhov rather dull and pedestrian, but I usually enjoy Ibsen's plays.

Thanks for the heads-up, I was able to book earlier today as well :) Didn't get my first seat pick as according to the computer system it left a single seat (it did not, there were at least four more seats next to it...) but still pretty happy with what I got.

And thanks from me as well.

I would just like to add to the positive reviews for this play - made some solid points and threw some questions to debate at the audience, but never po-faced and always entertaining.

I would recommend this is you can still get tickets.
