Saw Rattigan’s #TheSoundBarrier. A well-made play, but w’ a few striking structural surprises. Good on the wild blue yonder, maybe better …

… on the costs & consequences. In fact, this is the story of Thetis & Achilles, or Dido & Aeneas! Ralph R.! Also a lovely, kindly conclusion.

Saw Lean’s #TheSoundBarrier, in which film’s most grandiose craftsman really holds himself back, to great effect. I note the beautifully …

… differentiated crashes, & the quite stunning conclusion that they lead us to. Knew it was going to happen. Completely electrified anyway.
