"They say best men are moulded out of faults,
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad."

This was the first in a five play weekend; Peter Hall's Bath production kicked off the sequence in The Courtyard. It's a difficult and ultimately unconvincing play, spoilt by some inaudible actors whose poor diction was compounded as our seats were in the stalls underneath the circle overhang. We need to improve the acoustics in The Courtyard, which range from the sublime to the ridiculous. I saw Measure at the National last year, and this was better - but still unsatisfactory.

Personal Star Rating [out of five]**
