BirthdayFest #2 – The Rivals

To Glasgow on Saturday for a performance at the Theatre Royal of the Rivals by Sheridan. Oh dear, not even Stephanie Coles as Mrs Malaprop could save this production. She tried though bless her. What a lot of shouting from some of her fellow actors. How long too. Longer than many members of the audience could bear, though I stayed to the bitter end. In other cultures and at other times in history, smelly things would have been thrown. As it was, the audience such as it was, clapped politely, with relief, at the curtain.
