Moira+I went to the Tobacco Factory Theatre last night to see Dawn King’s “Ciphers” – a play accurately described in the blurb as a “provocative thriller about spies, double agents, and the opaqueness of the human soul”.
It was excellent – with first-class performances from all members of a talented cast.
One of the bonuses for us was being able to get together again with our good friend, Bruce Alexander (well known to many as Supt Mullet in TV’s “A Touch of Frost”), from our Thame days in Oxfordshire.
Highly recommended (but you’ll have to be quick though – it moves on to the Oxford Playhouse after this Saturday’s performance).
PS: Bruce’s son Sam (also an incredibly talented actor), stayed with us last year while he was performing in “Wild Oats” at Bristol’s Old Vic.
