" Live out of your imagination

not your history "

Stephanie and I saw a new production of the play ‘Anatomy of a Murder’ by Elihu Winer, made famous in 1959 with its film version by Otto Preminger. The play was performed in a court room near Blackfriars in London so you feel completely immersed in the experience. Cast members sit with you and then are called up as witnesses – it’s completely gripping. The production runs till 27 July – you can book online here.

The way the play has been put on offers a fantastic example of the way young people today are being innovative and creative. Matt Jessup, who heads up  For Short.Theatre Company explains how this group of actors are working in an exciting way:

The Daily Mail’s Sexism Gets Its Comeuppance

For the benefit of readers abroad who may be unfamiliar with the British press, ‘The Daily Mail’ is one of the worst of our daily papers. When the tabloid covered Amanda Palmer’s recent performance at Glastonbury, they didn’t mention anything about the music that she played, and just wrote about a brief moment when her breast “escaped her bra like a thief on the run”. In response the singer wrote and performed a song last week accusing them of debasing women. Very witty and worthy of an entry in A Brief History of Nakedness! Watch via this link here:
