But to find a mother younger than her son is very curious,
And that's the kind of mother that is usually spurious.

For someone who doesn't often get to musicals, Matilda and Top Hat def two off the highlights. Pure joy.
Uncle Vanya at The Print Room. Discovering new venue , two in fact, for me as hadn't been to The Jermyn st before, def a highlight. Probably All That Fall, despite the thrombosis, the highlight of the year. Something about seeing one of our best actresses at the top of her game, unselfconscious yet so crafted...
Long Day's Journey again a masterclass and what a play!
Timon of Athens rediscovered for our age and SRB doing it v well.
Red Velvet and This House: new plays, new writers.
Lowlights: sorry but King Lear at The Almeida. Shouty, shouty
A Chorus of Disapproval, not as funny as it could be ( v disappointing knicker ripping scene)
the Dark Earth and the Light Sky, very sensitive portrayal of difficult subject for a play
Jumpy, shallow ultimately but a good laugh at the time
Seeing Kiss Me Kate tonight so,this might be the Year of the Musical for me.
