Good call on Archipelago - Unrelated is fantastic too
Yes, tallish guy with a beard. I thought I recognised the big chap too - of course, Jerusalem!

The first three-quarters of the play is great, even if it takes a touch of time to get going. It's fun and quirky. But then Stenham realises she needs to make a point, and so ends with a didactic scene between the two brothers - one an MP, the other a bohemian drug addict - to give us her mini-thesis. And it's rather worthy and repetitive, though I do think if you haven't seen the aforementioned plays, you would get more out of it. No Quarter suffers in the light of those.
Jeremy Herrin, as usual, directs a strong production, with an excellent evocative design by Tom Scutt. And I thought it was rather well acted; Tom Sturridge impressed me very much - it's a role which could, I think, be quite easily over done - and Joshua James and Zoe Boyle are perfect as the over-loving 'posh' twins.
I've came to this not having seen Tusk Tusk and That Face. I gather they were on very similar lines?
