News update

Having a few days off, so thought I’d update with a couple of things I’ve found out.

    • Trevor Nunn and Ian McKellen are going to be doing a production of Chekov’s ‘The Seagull’ alongside their ‘King Lear’ at the close of the Festival, so that’s something to look forward to. A bit sad though, as that means the Festival will be over!


    • ‘Julius Caesar’ went back to having an interval, so might try and see that again at some point.


  • I can’t go to the balloon flight! There’s meant to be a balloon orchestra flying over Stratford on Midsummer’s morning, and annoyingly there’s no way I can be in Stratford that day! Really hoping someone I know will be able to go and tell me all about it.

Enough updates for now. Term’s almost over, my essays are in and I’m looking forward to the next production, which is Ninagawa’s ‘Titus Andronicus’ in four days time. Some people have already see it and told me it’s spectacular– really hoping that’s true!
