Review of Jean Anouilh’s The Rehearsal (LINKED) at Chichester’s Minerva Theatre. A truly five star production, centered on an outstanding performance by Edward Bennett. I’ll be surprised if his portrayal of Hero isn’t the best performance of 2015. Rehearsal_castv2_5512cbb034776

Review added of The Ghost Train by Arnold Ridley in the Talking Scarlet 2015 tour. With Jeffrey Holland and David Janson. ghosttrain
