Last night I went to see a preview of London Assurance at the National Theatre, with Steve. I haven't laughed so much at the theatre since the Hackney panto! The play is by Dion Boucicault and was first performed in 1841. It stars Simon Russell Beale, Fiona Shaw and Richard Briars. There is a lovely interview with Richard Briars, in the Times by Valerie Grove. There was much hilarity in the Green Room Bar discussing the problems of the mechanical rat, but at least it won't bite anyone - like the "real" monkey in Inherit the Wind!
