Well, because of all the bad notices I didn't know what to expect. I went along on May 31st to both the matinee and the evening performances and utterly, utterly enjoyed it! I am not a Chekovian scholar and would normally avoid his work as I do Ibsen so, I didn't go in with head you know where...all the performances were superb and the set which was negatively described to me was perfect for the production. This will not now transfer to the West End which is a great pity!
Indeed the 7 of us who were in Chichester that day wondered if the critics had actually seen the same production as us! - Barry C

I believe one of the broadsheet critics complained that the cast all seemed to be doing their own thing and there certainly was a sense of that last Thursday matineť. Ms Lipman waddling around doing the conjuring tricks - the only thing magical about this production. Don't bother. - rds
