Letter: Exit Sir Ian

Sir: Perhaps I am taking this all too personally, but I feel a bit miffed at being lumped in as part of Sir Ian McKellen's "London audiences" with non-English speaking tourists who go to the theatre as part of an itinerary of London attractions.

Whilst I would not deny foreign visitors the right to our great London theatre, the true London theatre aficionados' voice should be heard too. One of the reasons I choose to live in London is the proximity to great theatre, and I go at least once a month. If other actors follow Sir Ian what course will be left for me but a move out to the provinces?
