War Stopped for Heath & Safety Reasons

Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht
National Theatre, London SE1

Apparently in these cash-strapped times we should be grateful for what we get ... This seems to be the attitude of the National Theatre,  informing the audience yesterday only when seated we'd be getting just the first half of Brecht's wartime drama Mother Courage as they hadn't manage to finish the technical rehearsal. This is taking alienation a bit far, TLT thought. Still, unfair to give it the red light purely on the experience as we didn't see the production, opting instead to re-book at no extra cost (excluding fares and time). So we'll let you know when -  [further blogging in this entry is cancelled as we haven't finished the rough copy ...]
