Sir: Thank you for your article on Adrian Noble and the Royal Stratford Theatre ("End of the winter of discontent?", 31 March). I have seen many productions of The Tempest, and last year's was the best of them, well cast, brilliantly acted and directed.

Perhaps the stage is no longer state of the art - I wouldn't know - but I hope the mooted renovation will not mean any reduction in the seating.

A smaller auditorium may be cosier and chummier, but either the seats will cost more or the actors will be worse paid, or both.
