Subject:      The Tower

Has anybody looked carefully at the new Royal Shakespeare Theatre at Stratford upon 
Avon? It's major feature is an enormous Tower which rises 36 metres above the River 
Avon. The management says that the Tower offers 'an iconic anchor for our theatres'.  
But the theatre has nothing to do with the Tower, and the notion of 'iconic anchor' 
is meaningless. In effect, the Tower offers a wholly redundant space. You can go up 
and you can go down. And they charge you 2.50 pounds for the privilege.
