I've updated the #theatre101 site with my thoughts on Samuel Beckett's 'All That Fall' at Wilton's Music Hall.

A radio play performed in a theatre, which meant the whole audience had to be blindfolded the entire time.

It was odd, captivating, and very, very moving. Though, as I explain, that may have been because of the news I'd received that morning.

New on the #theatre101 site.

My thoughts on a very disappointing 'Long Day's Journey Into Night' at the Bristol Old Vic.

"Three and a half hours of watching a drunkard, a morphine addict and two angry young men scream at and threaten each other. You know, I live in London. I can sit on a park bench in certain parts of town and watch that for free all the live-long day."

I've updated the #theatre101 site with my review of the excellent 'The Weir'.

https://the101challenge.org/

" I hadn’t appreciated my weekend in Edinburgh coincided with an England – Scotland rugby match, so was surprised when half of my fellow passengers on the 7*am* service out of Kings Cross started to crack open the lager."

Happy reading!

"It is easy to dismiss local news as irrelevant and outdated into today’s world of instant online, global communication; the preserve of headlines like ‘Old Mrs Miggins has a funny turn on the No. 30 bus’ and ‘Newsagent runs out of five pence pieces’."
