We're back from holiday (guess where we went!); me having first undergone a tooth extraction, barely finishing the penicillin in time to fly out and drink lots of wine.

So now we're back, and facing the autumn theatre season. So far we have -

September
'The Girl from the North Country' (Old Vic)
'Mrs Orwell' (Southwark Playhouse)
'Against' (Almeida)
'King Lear' (The Globe)

October
'Apologia' (Trafalgar Studios)
'St George and the Dragon' (The National)
Richard Thompson Concert (The Bridge Theatre - brand new venue; really exciting!)

November
'Young Marx' (The Bridge)
'A Murder is Announced' (Churchill, Bromley)
'Albion' (Almeida)
'A Woman of No Importance' (Vaudeville)
'The Lady from the Sea' (Donmar)

December
'A Christmas Carol' (Old Vic)

That's it so far for 2017; but we already have a couple of things (including Essiedou's Hamlet which goes on tour).

However, I've just noticed that Southwark will be putting on J M Barrie's Dear Brutus over the Christmas season. It hasn't even been cast yet; but I'm very tempted. I read it as an A level student, saw one production and then it kinda sank without trace. It's a great, funny, dark, thought-provoking whimsy

Reading, Listening, Watching

Reading: The Regiment - The Real Story of the SAS as recommended yonks ago by [personal profile] fififolle. I'm not, in general, that much interested by the military but do keep having to write them in stories. I've only just finished the first chapter on the Iranian Embassy siege.

Listening: The Writers' Room have been wrong about a lot of things recently. I've just finished listening to them being wrong about Ian Stuart Black, before that they were very, very wrong about Stephen Gallagher and before that a little bit wrong about Douglas Adams.

Watching: We ran out of Netflix available Killjoys, fortunately the second series of The Expanse turned up to fill the gap.

Every Roman mile along Hadrian's Wall, there was a milecastle. Our walk gradually came to be measured by which milecastles we were between even though no traces of the one's at either end exist and, in some cases, their location is purely speculative. Still we saw quite a few in the middle.
