Chemist goes to the Theatre

By Claire V J Skipper, on 18 November 2011

Dear All,

Last night, I went to the Bloomsbury Theatre to see the UCLU Drama Society’s production of Much Ado About Nothing.

It was with much trepidation that I settled down to watch with my friend in the modern theatre (with ample leg room), as earlier this year I had seen the West End version and assumed that the amateur production would not compare. I am pleased to report, however, that although the special effects could not compete (the one literally shaky moment being when an arch fell over) the acting would certainly not have been out of place in the West End.

At times, it exceeded expectations and of especial note was the Prince’s Guard who had either taken it upon themselves or been directed to act camp, which added a further dimension of hilarity to this side plot.
