Subject: 13.1486 Why Hawthorne Hated the RSC
Comment:        Re: SHK 13.1486 Why Hawthorne Hated the RSC

A similar 'abandonment' was described by two of the actors in the
current MSND.  They said that after the reviews came out - which were
scurrilous - no one from the production was there to nurse them through
- their director had disappeared to direct something else, Adrian Noble
- whose job it should have been as head of the company was too busy
directing Chitty to appear at all, and they definitely felt they had
been abandoned to sink!  I may say that the actors were speaking to a
study group and that one of the group immediately rose and apologised on
behalf of the Company for this unacceptable and hRe: orrific state of
affairs - he was a governor!  So, the RSC has definitely sunk as a
company if this is what is now considered acceptable!  It is becoming a
commercial churn out the product!
