That'll teach me to let the weather affect my theatre-going. I was booked in to see the Globe's touring production of Comedy of Errors at Coventry Cathedral on Monday night, but after a very poor work day and with the weather looking extremely gloomy, I decided to pass on my tickets. The plan was, instead, to catch it this (Wednesday) afternoon.
Just called Coventry Cathedral to find that the matinee today has been cancelled owing to lack of ticket sales, and I can't make it this evening. Thus, my only Shakespeare for July passes unseen and unreviewed. Sorry, Globe.

Very exciting this. Coming to the Barbican in November is the long-awaited Macbeth by Song of the Goat Theatre. This is the production that was premiered as a work-in-progress during the RSC's Complete Works Festival, and even back then it was a breathtakingly physical and visceral collection of scenes. Don't miss this.
