Prasanna Puwanarajah’s superb performance as the Prosecutor in Dara at The Lyttleton: “A lengthy courtroom scene, in which Dara is tried for apostasy by a sharia court, is electrifying” (Telegraph review)
Andy de la Tour’s equally superb performance as Spijak the tailor in The Cutting of the Cloth at The Southwark Playhouse: “Andy de la Tour excellently catches Spijak’s mixture of bullying ferocity and lyrical passion for a perfectly finished jacket” (Guardian review). We took our own tame tailor: Andrew Ramroop.
Bodice-ripping, breeches-rippling Poldark on a Sunday night: “Aidan Turner’s lusty Ross causes tremors across the Cornish coastline” (Independent review).
Foaming pints at The Falcon, Arncliffe in the Yorkshire Dales – “a gem” (Alastair Sawday) – after climbing through snowdrifts from Kettlewell.
Mark Rylance and Iestyn Davies as Farinelli at The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
All the cast in the superb A View From The Bridge.
Jed Mercurio’s heart-stopping (or rather heart-starting) drama CRITICAL. Several scenes watched from behind the sofa, but great cast and dialogue.
