Subject:        A night to remember

To Middle Temple as a birthday treat, upon which my nurse wife has spent
three day's NHS salary, to see the second night of Shakespeare's Globe
Company's Twelfth Night. Mark the Master of the Company promises a "play
in recreated clothing of the Elizabethan period with a dance at the end
of the play, and with a six piece Broken Consort as musical
accompaniment. [...] [as] the setting is unique and stunning we  won't
use a modern set[...] [will]open attiring rooms [...] and an [have
an]all male cast, as Mr Burbage did[...]"

We got all that and more; a little bag of Elizabethan nibbles and a
liberal supply of mulled wine to mention some.

But there is something curiously off-focus about some Globe productions
these days. And it grieves me to say it. If the NHS doesn't start paying
nurses what they are worth some might wonder about lashing out on
certain theatre visits. Until other list members have had a chance to
see this production the rest shall be scilens.

Nine  'pon ten for the concept and the effort though.

Best wishes,
Graham Hall
