A little bit of culture

 April managed to get free tickets to the Taming of the Shrew (The Globe) from a friend at work that couldn't go.  And I was dragged along with her.

Just kidding I did want to go, and would say that I enjoyed it.  Although it was hard work and three hours is far too long.  I reckon I could have cut half the scenes out and I still wouldn't have had a clue as to what the story was about...

To begin with our seats weren't the best (10% loss) so you couldn't really hear all of it properly, there were a bunch of kids constantly nattering a few rows back (20%) which was annoying and quite off putting and to top it off it was almost in a foreign language (20%).  Towards the end I was beginning to get the gist of it but it was bloody hard work. 

All in all a fun experience but far too long.  We're off again to see As You Like It with April's boss in September so the practise will be good.
