Last Saturday, I was hardcore. The Globe theatre is presenting Richard vi, with selected days offering all three parts for the truly theatre-mad.
I had a seat, but the groundlings made even the truly hardcore look soft. Half the day they withstood baking sun, the evening brought torrential rain,but they were not daunted.
A great production with a particularly joyous jig at the end (complete with a gore-stained Hal dancing away).
