Sleep With Me

Cottesloe, National Theatre (0171-452 3000)

Hanif Kureishi's supposedly less solipsistic rewrite of his novel Intimacy is set on a summer weekend in the country. It features a self- obsessed flock of media types centred around ex- and would-be lovers who descend upon the autobiographical central character, his wife and nanny (a hideously patronising portrait). The arguments are rigged and an excellent cast is wasted playing characters written with so little impartial compassion.
