  3. Just came back from YF’s Knives in Hens at the Donmar. I think I need a break from her productions. Again incense, again. Dry earthy, dark (literally and method) and somewhat difficult to digest at times. She has a trademark way of staging plays that by now I come to find a wee bit repetitive. Very good performances from the three actors.


  4. […] It stars a woman (Ruth Negga) as Hamlet. This is the project she referred to back here (last fall) as her next project, in tandem with Oedipus to […]
