Seen in the last week of it's UK premiere at The Almeida with a happy 'first' for me in the front of the circle (the ideal place for this play)

Celeb in the audience: Charles Dance and Sam West but NOT together! We also saw a dog collar behind us and I wondered if it's that guy who has the blog........

Amazing production ..........more later.............
