Classics at the cinema  

Thanks to the wonders of new technology, many theatres are now beaming out live performances of their productions to cinemas across the land. At the risk of being a bit London Metropolitan, the National Theatre is broadcasting plays over the next couple of months including  Fela! and King Lear starring the great Derek Jacobi. I was hoping to ask my publisher if she might ship me to the Rosebud Cinema in Victoria (err… Melbourne) but I think I’ll have to settle for the Tunbridge Wells Odeon. Ho hum!
