September 1st

Saw J G Ballard's Cornelius in the intimate Finborough Theatre at Earl's Court.

The play has just been revived after several decades - a sharp idea of someone's to bring back a work about the lives of workers in a company buckling under pressure from creditors. It's easy to empathise with the characters.

Saw April De Angelis's Jumpy at the Duke of York's Theatre
Tamsin Greig, Bel Powley and Doon Mackichan star in the mother and daughter play.

There's a neat 5 minute interview here with Tamsin and Doon in which Tamsin links the play's feminist themes to Pussy Riot.
