The Chalk Garden

We have been dying to see something in this theatre for ages, since so many great productions seem to originate there. This did not disappoint.
It is a very small theatre and not all that well designed – you get a railing across your view if you have front row balcony seats. But you were on the edge of your seat anyway, so it was not a big problem.
Great cast of actors – Margaret Tyzack was wonderful, as was Penelope Wilton. A very interesting play – one that we think probably fits into the Shaw mandate and that we would love to see done there.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    It’s really hard to say why this was so good. But it was. I guess a great cast and production didn’t hurt. I’d like to see it at the Shaw too – to see the impact of a different cast and director. It’s Cathy’s job to get Jackie Maxwell on side.
