Theatre

Did the Stratford-upon-Avon thing at the Bank Holiday. The As you like it... was not very well done - a new director had the actors all shounting their lines (spit everywhere), and all on one note. I didn't like it, and after suffering through the first hour and a bit, left at the interval rather than sit through another couple of hours of it.

The Cymbelline was much better done, and interesting production of a minor play (another instance of the cross-dressing/missing relatives plot). Unfortunately timing wasn't right to see a performance of The Tamer Tamed, a contemporary riposte/sequel to The Taming of the Shrew.
