Berlin by David Hare

David Hare reading his own piece and directed by Stephen Daldry
Snuck into the early evening of the Lyttelton @ the National prior the regular scheduled performance of the day.

I could listen to Mr Hare read the telephone directory and he would deliver it with dry passion and relaxed, perfect diction.
There were moments of this piece that made me blush with their own self consciousness but if I insist upon putting someone on a pedestal, I can be forgiven for grabbing their toes and tipping them off balance from time to time.

So pleased I was able to see this........and at such a convenient time.
