The Vortex

A and I went to The Royal Exchange this afternoon to see The Vortex. I haven't seen any Noel Coward since I was at school, but this was different from any other Coward I've seen - more poignant, less flippant. Mind you, that could also be down to the fact that I've grown up since then.

Will Young was okay in it - perhaps it was too subtle a role for a first timer (he was very petulant and not perhaps as anguished as I might have expected) but he was believable - you forgot he was Will Young and got totally swept up with Nicky.

It's the first time A and I have been the The Royal Exchange for ages - not since She Stoops to Conquer in May or June last year. They are staging The Tempest later this season, so I hope to get to that, too.
