>"Dying For It"

>A great night out last night. P and I met up after work – pasta and a glass of cheap Shiraz and then off to the Almeida to see Moira Buffini‘s free adaptation of Nikolai Erdman‘s The Suicide, Dying for It. It was only the second preview but it looks in good shape. It’s a play of great heart and scale – it’s a monster of a play. How fantastic to see such a big piece of work (large cast, enormous set, big ideas) firing on all cylinders.

UPDATE: The West End Whingers have been to see it and they write about it here. They liked it.

Two really good nights at the theatre in two days. We’re cooking on gas here. Tonight it’s Martin Crimp’s Attempts On Her Life at The National. Can we do the hat trick?

I have feedback on the radio play. Positive, but more to do. Positive is good, isn’t it? I can do more.

  1. >What a play! What a version by MB! What a set! (did you see the mousetrap, complete with dead mouse?)

  2. >I’m glad you enjoyed it. Didn’t see the mouse from where we sat – perhaps it hadn’t been cast at preview.
