The Olivier Awards were announced last night. Congratulations to The Mountaintop. Two really good performances in a well-written piece.
Rylance won for Jerusalem in a stand-out performance in a really good show.
I saw The Mountaintop at Trafalgar Studios and Jerusalem in the West End and am off to see Enron later in the year for which Goold won for Directing.

Off to Apollo Theatre in the West End this week to see Jerusalem. It has been nominated for a number of writing and acting awards. A recent article makes the case for the play being a treatise on Englishness.I really wanted to see it at the Royal Court but couldn’t make it.
Writer Jez Butterworth’s had an interesting career so far with his mixture of stageplays, screenplays and Directing. There’s an interview from 2009 here with Journalist Mark Lawson.
All in all I’m really looking forward to the day.
