We had a very happy time at The REP last week. The Anatomy of Melancholy is 10% slimmer than it was for its Premiere at Warwick Arts Centre in March and feels more direct and manageable (thus moving it further from our source text). We played to houses over 80% full and we got lots of excellent feedback, with most expressing wonder at the performances. My sense is these will only get better as the tour goes on and they grow ever more familiar and even comfortable with the piece. On Saturday we’re in Bradford, before Lancaster, Lincoln and finally London. Different settings, different audiences, more chances for us to learn about the show.

In case you missed it, here is a link to The Guardian’s Preview of the show which came out last week.
