WORDS, WORDS, WORDS(SIGH)
MADAME DE SADE
at Wyndham's

WORDS, WORDS, WORDS(SIGH)

This production of Madame de Sade, is quite frankly, all talk and no action. Even a cast including Judi Dench, Frances Barber and Rosamund Pike can't save it.

PLAGUE OVER ENGLAND
at the Duchess Theatre

IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER, THINGS CAN GET TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

It's a nasty bit of history that Nicholas de Jongh tells us about in Plague Over England. A near casualty:Sir John Gielgud.

THE WINTER'S TALE
at the Courtyard (Stratford-upon-Avon)
