31 Aug -5 Sept at the Malvern Festival Theatre; at Gielgud Theatre, London W1 from 10 Sept.
To describe my review of Michael Frayn's National Theatre play Copenhagen was less than enthusiastic is something of an understatement. Not, I suspect, that Mr Frayn is too worried. My view puts me nowhere near the majority position and anyway, he has other fish to fry with another new play, a far more theatrical piece, Alarms and Excursions. The cast is Robert Bathurst, Nicky Henson, Felicity Kendall and Josie Lawrence (right) in "Alphabetical Order", to quote another Frayn title).
