I have tickets booked! The fifth Shakespeare play of year is going to be Henry V*.
I’m going to see an all-female production in Waterloo East. Alas, I haven’t managed to get tickets to see the all-women Henry IV at the Donmar Warehouse beforehand – that would have been an awesome accidental double-bill.
The venue is apparently underneath a railway arch, which should make for an interesting atmosphere (and seating is unreserved, which gives me some qualms – I normally like to be able to pick the end of a row). I’ll report back in November on what the show is like!
*It’s actually the 11th time I’ve gone to the theatre this year. That’s more times than I’ve been to the cinema. I have accidentally become cultured.
