Rafta Rafta

One of the joys of not having to work is that you can do things at short notice. My best friend and I went to seethe National Theatre's Rafta Rafta at the Rep in Birmingham this afternoon. It was highly recommended and did not disappoint. The cast was excellent and the staging wonderful.
The audience were a mix of retirees like us, a mass of schoolboys (many of them Asian), and a big party of Asian women. The cheering at the end was long and loud and seemed to be led by the Asian schoolboys who obviously related wholeheartedly with the young Asians in the play. Brilliant. Go and see it if it comes anywhere near you.
