It’s been a busy month culturally I’m surprised to say. Fireworks at the Royal Court lived up to my expectations – so much so that I’m going back again mid March with my OH and a big group of pals. Olafur Arnalds didn’t happen – grrr (that’s to say the gig did happen but I couldn’t go, illness – not me – that’s all I’m willing to recall about that). So here’s the list for Feb and I’ll paste the code for what’s what at the bottom for reference.
1 February - Confidence 2 February - Broadchurch 3 February - Africa United 3 February - Men in the Sun (by Ghassan Kanafani) 4 February - SECRETS OF THE SMALL HOURS by Nick Dear (Radio 4) 4 February - Wolf Hall 5 February - The Good Wife 7 February - The Singing Stones (Arcola Theatre, Dalston) 9 February - Broadchurch 10 February - HOME FRONT Omnibus (Radio 4) 10 February - The Devil's Whore (Ep 3) 11 February - Wolf Hall 12 February - The Good Wife 16 February - Broadchurch 17 February - HOME FRONT Omnibus (Radio 4) 17 February - Fireworks (Royal Court Theatre) 18 February - Wolf Hall 20 February - Casual Vacancy 20 February - The Visitor 21 February - Indian Summers 22 February - MEN WHO SLEEP IN CARS (Radio 4) 22 February - Casual Vacancy 22 February - Indian summers 23 February - Broadchurch 24 February - HOME FRONT Omnibus (Radio 4) 24 February - The Departure (short) 24 February - Life's a pitch (short) 24 February - The Good Wife 25 February - Wolf Hall 26 February - Voices by Munize Manzur 26 February - The Good Wife Key: live performances (including music and theatre), telly dramas, books, films, RADIO DRAMA, art exhibitions
So still a lot of telly this month (but it was all brilliant) – but a smattering of other things too. I notice I am still to go to an art exhibition this year – will try to remedy that in March.
And in the coming week I’ve two plays I’m seeing so you never know March may be a highbrow one…
Other highlights of February include figuring out an easy and delicious cheat macaroni cheese recipe. Let me know if you are interested!
