If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

Apparantly pedestrian sounds similar to paedophile in Spanish. I think thats excuse enough when driving home tonight Bish.

Yes, at least the opening of the Ancient Mariner was there, and yes, Tango... the opening section of Kubla Khan...

Those two works, and, i suspect, much of the rest, are a product, in part, of the opium - soaked imagination... Was a great lunch-time event though... And i took my own sandwich...

probably to the bog every 10mins as I have a nasty stomach-crampy dribbly-down-below condition which I think stems from scoffing piles of buffet-food after my eldest son's AS-level prize-giving last night... :vomit:

I'm there next Friday. This production is really dividing the critics. Rave in the Mail. Negative in The Guardian. and the locals and specialist journals divide also...

Brave and remarkably honest of the Octagon to put the hostile reviews on their site as well as the positive...

I'm looking forward enormously - i'm an Ibsen fan and four of the cast were in the brilliant, unblemished in terms of acting, All My Sons last month.

Okay, mini-review, no spoilers:

A dark Victorian angst-ridden melodrama about family secrets which aren't so much slowly revealed as hinted at letting the viewer join the dots to get near the truth.

I found it far too similar to last months offering and I believe the director has said they retained the same glass floor for both productions as they wanted to convey the similarities.

A small and powerful cast most of whom have been retained from All My Sons but for me that was a failing rather than a positive. Same actors and other than losing the American accents the same acting traits. Oscar Pearce (Oswald) must have stayed behind for extra lessons in conveying his voice. He has now spent two productions shouting at the top of his voice!

The production wasn't quite as polished as I would expect either. There were at least a couple of missed cues and fluffed lines, a prop was accidentally broken and as Oscar entered for the first time he dropped his pipe which almost landed in my lap as we were sat in row D which was the very front row and right next to one of the stage access points. I think that may have been one of the reasons I didn't quite enjoy this as much as I was expecting. I was far too close to the action and the cast seemed to spend the entire production almost sat on my knee shouting at each other. I think I prefer my viewing position slightly more elevated than that.

The above sounds negative and picky but I did enjoy it and it sparked a long debate between my wife and myself which is always a good sign. Margot Leicester was for me the pick of the cast playing a powerful matriarch who holds all the family sercrets, or Ghosts of the title. Overall though, after sleeping on it, I think I share The Guardians opinion rather than The Mails. My wife on the other hand, was far more positive. As said, opinion divided.

...and to add to the above, I've just now sought out and read The Guardians review on the Octagon website (I never do that before seeing a production) and I have to say it is spot on!

See, as a rule, I never read a review of anything before watching/listening to it myself, only on this occasion I have. I'm quite fascinated now. I'll report back.
