THEATRE: PICK OF THE WEEK
Wednesday 27 March 1996
Back for a third time, Ian Brown's wildly successful production of Sue Glover's joyous celebration of a rural past streaked with sadness has a blink-and-you'll-miss-it (don't) stay in London before embarking on a world tour.
To Sat. Donmar Warehouse, London, WC2 (0171-369 1732)
Educating Rita / Oleanna
Two plays about power: Rita (above) is large-spirited and hearteningly supple, Oleanna is narrow and thrillingly single-minded. An astute piece of programming directed by Jonathan Church.
