the tempest

Moira, Ruth, Gareth, Alan, Lal, Chris, Liz, Mike and I spent another very enjoyable evening at the Tobacco Factory last night to see Andrew Hilton’s stylish production of “The Tempest”. Another full house. Hugely impressive once again (although perhaps not quite up to the heights of the earlier Midsummer Night’s Dream). Some excellent performances – notably Ian Barritt’s Prospero (with his piercing stare!) and Christopher Staines’s Ariel/Caliban, with Chris Donnelly (Stephano) and Felix (Trinculo) making excellent drunkards (“riotous fun” according to Sam Marlowe in The Times).
Live performance is very good for the soul!
