So at the weekend I saw:

Scaramouche Jones (Assembly Rooms - brilliant)
Krapp's Last Tape (Assembly Rooms - dull dull dull but that was how he wrote it so a good production given that)
Trangression (C Soco - BMXs, bladers, free-runners - great fun)
Married to the Sea (Assembly Rooms - also brilliant. Do try and catch this)
An Expert at the Card Table (Assembly Rooms again - great magic, bit of a thin excuse for a show but nicely done)
ShakesPod (C Venue - great company, nice little play, proper Fringe stuff - and somehow sponsored by Jim Haynes whose house Ross and I gatecrashed when we were in Paris last year)
Architecting (Traverse - extraordinary but three shows later, I perhaps wasn't best placed to appreciate it)

And then yesterday I took the afternoon off to catch On the Waterfront directed by Mr Berkoff in what I see is a co-production with Nottingham Playhouse so I felt very patriotic towards to it. It was astonishingly beautiful so easy to feel patriotic.

And then a fun production of She Stoops to Conquer which I haven't ever seen and felt I should. Predictably I was fairly bored but they did it well enough, even despite being a leading man down poor bastards.

Day off today as I am Dundee bound with work. Phsew.
