O’Neill’s stonking piece of work is safe and in the care of visionary director Richard Eyre and a wonderful cast lead by the luminous Lesley Manville.
Go see The Flying Lovers Of Vitebsk with someone you love and remember how fortunate you are to have each other.
It’s refreshing to go to something without such barefaced moralising but I can’t say I really enjoyed it. No kidding.
Miss Julie is a powerhouse production and Tom Littler’s direction ensures every word and silence aches with feeling; it should not be missed.

For anyone feeling exhausted and frustrated with the political status quo and the depressing direction of international politics as a whole, I urge you to go to The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui.
