How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
3.5 stars would be more accurate. Stoppard isn't always easy to act, his language dominates so much that I feel some of the actors struggled a bit. Overall though, this play was great. The actor who played Henry delivered most of the speeches very well (the only one that I wished for a bit more was the Cricket bat speech). The open dialogue at the end of the play was planned very poorly and should have been more structured for a fruitful discussion. I've never seen a play in the round before and enjoyed the intimacy of the set very much.
