With my theatre going friends I saw the first of the Shakespeare trilogy concentrating on Henry VI on Wednesday at Milton Keynes Theatre. It was superbly done, raw, passionate and brilliantly staged. As we walked away from the theatre at the end I heard a couple of people being rather unkind about it. The comments were unfounded and I think meant to impress the listener with their superior authority. A shame as the cast portrayed a very complex period of history with great clarity.
We are off the the last two plays this evening and really looking forward to more exciting theatre.
Happy theatre going.
