DUNSINANE –  I quote what Ingrid wrote.  “We watched Dunsinane today in Stratford, at the matinee: What a fantastic performance! It was tremendous, powerful, playing incredible tricks with one’s mind. Brian Ferguson, the Malcom/Karzai who came over as the true realist, quite lovable and just a little despicable, Jonny Phillips as the noble warrior, so naive and yet so cruel, Tom Gill, little Sojo who was told…, and the wonderful Siobhan Redmond as Gruach, she had me in tears at the end.“ What a production! Bravo! Thank you National Theatre of Scotland! Thank you RSC for putting it on at The Swan. I enjoyed it again. Tonight is the last performance in Stratford. Congratulations to all the National Theatre of Scotland team and good luck for the next performances of the play. Thought provoking and wonderful acting.

SCOTT HANDY TALK FOR THE RSC FRIENDS –  It was a privilege to be present, when Scott Handy gave a mesmerizing talk to the RSC Friends. Everyone there appeared impressed by his sincerity and relevant comments including how actors bring the written lines to life. We should thank him for taking time to talk to us despite his busy schedule. Scott is such an intelligent, pleasant, unassuming gentleman and a credit to his profession.  And thank you Jane for your pertinent questions –so good a host and for organising the Event along with Penny who also deserves our thanks.

UNWRAPPED AND SCRIPT- IN – HAND PERFORMANCES – We have been enjoying going to the various Unwrapped Events that have been staged at the RSC and also the script in hand readings. I am looking forward to Saturday which starts with Unwrapped Cardenio at 10.30, followed by a weekend created by Mark Ravenhill – script in hand readings Poppy at 2pm (a musical set during the 19th century Opium Wars) and Fashion at 7pm (a satire re political spin as an advertising tycoon bids for the job of re-modelling the Tories in 1987).

My goodness we are being spoilt for choice.
