to the theatre….where I and my learned friend saw King Charles III amid grey heads and rustling sweetie packets. What a brilliant play, truly fabulous. I have always loved Robert Powell since his Jesus of Nazerath days (he can not blink for an unfeasibly long time you know, a rare gift) and tbh that was the main draw, initially. However, once settled in I realised that this play had it all in spades: love, death, betrayal, Shakespeare, a modern day Lady MacBeth, princess Diana, doc martins….the lot really. Seriously, it’s on tour across the UK now so go and see it if you can. Definitely worth the ticket price.
