Theatre: Pick of the Week
Wednesday 12 June 1996
Passionate, powerful performances alive to every magnificent detail in Mike Alfreds's triumphant staging of Hardy's tale of hopes and dreams, in rep with Coward's comedy of bad, bad manners. Book now.
Lyric Hammersmith, London W6
This glorious comedy reconstructed by Michael Frayn from early Chekhov was a National Theatre stunner in the 1980s. A new production by Alan Ayckbourn.
Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough (01723 370541)
Correction: Contrary to the impression given in W Stephen Gilbert's interview on this page last week, Trevor Griffiths is currently under commission to the National Theatre.
