I was hoping to be trying to pick my favourite shows from a list of 36, but due to unexpected illness I had to miss the last three plays I had booked for the year. Annoyingly one of these has already finished and the other will come to an end before I am recovered enough to go. Oh well, health is more important.
So this year the Norfolkbookworm has written 33 reviews and also seen another 4 comedy shows which are just too hard to review, the improvised one for sure was something you had to be there for to find it all funny.
Right my top 8 plays for the year, and these are just the top plays - they are in no other order than the dates in which I saw them:
- All the Angels - Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
- The Red Shoes - Theatre Royal Norwich
- Hamlet - The Almeida
- Love in Idleness - Menier Chocolate Factory
- Nell Gwynn - Globe Theatre
- The Ferryman - Royal Court
- Ink - Almeida
- Young Marx - The Bridge Theatre
Even in a year where I was really disappointed with the Globe's offering two of their productions are still in my top 8 but it has to be said that I am looking forward to seeing where the new AD takes the theatre.
