Oh My F**king God!

I saw this right the way through for the first time this weekend and it is pretty mind-blowing. It is truly epic in scale, vision and ideas covered and I really loved it. There is so much in the play to think about. And Andrew Scott is a charismatic little dynamo who carries the piece squarely on his shoulders and can transfix the whole of the Olivier audience. I will write a proper review in due course, but if you want to see epic grandeur and a play that will really make you think about a whole range of moral and ethical dilemmas, and look within yourself to see how you measure up re integrity and principles and doing the right thing, this is the play for you!

Highly highly recommended! (But then this is the National Theatre, so what else are you expecting me to say?!).
