Would I make a theatre critic? I suppose not.
Just a quick post today as we are preparing for the arrival of the grandsons tomorrow.
Shakespeares birth place. We didn't go in, it was raining and all the tourists were crammed into the various visitor attractions.
The Royal Shakespeare Theatre, we actually went to the Courtyard Theatre, a temporary set up while the refurbishment of the main theatre was undertaken. It's theatre in the round and was a wonderfully quirky place, all bare ply-wood sheets and temporary wiring, and Much Ado? The best production of it we've seen, the setting was modern Delhi and all the cast were Asian, it just worked wonderfully. Before the theatre we dined at No. 9 Church Street, what a superb meal, pricey but worth every penny. All in all it was a brilliant night out.
Does it need a comment?
This may be the last post for a while, the boys are inclined to take up most of my time.
