My friend V bought tickets to the Bell Shakespeare production of Moliere's School for wives months ago, and we went last night. Loved it!
It was first performed in 1662, so - forty odd years after the death of Will Shakespeare.
This was a contemporary (ish) interpretation, set in Paris in the 1920s. It's the first time I've seen this theatre company perform and can't wait to see what they're doing next year. I hope there will be a Shakesperian comedy. I remember seeing Hugo Weaving and - was it Bruce Spence? - in The taming of the shrew about 20 years ago. Also - now I'm boasting - Alan Rickman in this. I love the comedies.
Now I've got to put my smiling face on and go and see my specialist.
Have allocated some cash to go and buy myself a treat afterwards because I like him but hate having to go and see him twice a year.
