As an alternative to a book review, last night we went to see The Rivals at the Royal Theatre in Bath. This is a comedy of manners set in Regency Bath.
The actors were generally very good, and Mrs Malprop played her part fantastically, with the audience laughing throughout. I hadn’t previously known that this was where the word “Malpropism” came from.
Our pre-theatre meal was more rushed than planned, but was still a very nice pizza in the Market bar across the road from the theatre. This also gave us a perfect view of the BBC crew doing their opening night filming.
If you are in the area, try to see this in the next week. Its definitely worth it.
