I know hard to tell but were the walk outs for content or style?
It is a myth put about by playwrights that people walk out because they are offended by the content; they walk out because plays are boring or otherwise no good.

Jo Davies isn't quite middle-aged!
How old is she ?

Rap. Oh dear. Another case of a middle-class middle-aged white director trying to be down with the kids.

To be fair I saw this play the last time the RSC did it (Helen Mirren) and they set it in period that time and it still wasn't up to much.

I'm seeing this in a few weeks and already looking forward to pretending I enjoyed it just to annoy everyone.
The Telegraph review said "the evening might appeal to those who’ve not seen the play before, or have no taste."   So which one are you going for ?

Of course the fact the Telegraph called it a "shoddy adaptation" will confirm in her own mind her genius.

Plenty of empty seats when I was there actually, Southwark's current theatre ( the third location I remember) is a good space.

Ms Reiss is certainly vocal in her responding to criticism. In a reply to a positive review by Mark Shenton:

"all hail Mark Shenton! (usually be [sic] better than this but CERTAIN pple [other critics] have been dicks so I've lost all sense of shame/pride)"

"She describes her own writing style as “sparky and relevant” and expresses her determination to avoid any kind of “museum writing”"

Full of herself, isn't she.
