Strung Out And Sleep Deprived
Gah, this week has been ridiculously busy. I have been beset by the constant sense of needing to be somewhere other than I am. Amidst all the dashing around and the white-faced late nights in front of my laptop, I have managed to see a couple of productions this week: Femi Oguns’ Torn at the Arcola, and a revival of Bryony Lavery’s Frozen at Riverside Studios, both of which have much to recommend them (though the performance of the former was rather horribly overshadowed by the violent death of the brother of one of the cast members). Tomorrow I am fleeing the city and heading someplace green and pleasant for a few days.
