Ok, so this is a bit of a con, Phil hasn’t actually seen Martin Crimp’s Attempts on her Life at the National Theatre.
But shocked by Andrew’s comments on this controversial production in a telephone conversation, he decided to read Andrew’s full review. And full it was. Although partial to brevity when watching a play, Andrew can be a bit prone to loquacity.
So, if like Phil you clicked on Andrew’s full review, looked at its length, and the words “life’s too short” sprang to mind (Phil still hasn’t made it all the way through). The kindly Phil, knowing you all have better things to do this Easter weekend, has provided an apercu of Andrew’s rambling thoughts.
He loved it.
