    I am looking forward to seeing this in a couple of weeks - thanks for the review. :)

    I love to see Hare's work although I always find him complex and end up buying the script straight after the performance....

    It sounds very typical of him to satirise the behaviour of a group such as the 'LSE graduates' - I will look forward to this.

    Now I just have to resist looking up other reviews so that I haven't formed an opinion before I get there!

    And on a moneysaving note, it is worth mentioning that tickets are available from just £10 for many plays at The National, including this one. Although it takes place in the relatively large Lyttleton Theatre, the seating is good and you don't really get a bad view from anywhere in the theatre.

    Also 15-25 year olds can see the performance free, using the 'entrypass' scheme: http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/entrypass (though I am not sure that Hare's work would be compelling entertainment for the average 15 year old...)

    I saw this play last year and I did enjoy it but I'm not sure I really remembered much of it.

    I'm a complete ignoramus when it comes to the workings of the City and I'm not sure I really understood what happened and why?? Or maybe that is the point?!

    I joked with my friends that watching this made up for only reading the life & style sections of the newspapers for the past 18 months!

    It was entertaining and I enjoyed the way it was staged and written.
    I've got my own flat :j:j

    Now I have to pay the bills :eek:

    And feed my interiors addiction ;)
