Everywhere you look, theatre is re-examining fascism. Michael Grandage's riveting production of Good (selling out fast at the Donmar) looks at the issue from the perspective of a play written in 1981. Wallace Shawn's Aunt Dan and Lemon, another fascinating study of the troubling acceptance of ideas which only slowly reveal their true horror, dates from the same period. Back then, at its Royal Court premiere, Linda Hunt played the beloved Aunt. In Tom Cairns's revival at the Almeida, the role goes to Miranda Richardson (right).
