Capital move

Desmond Barrit's hilariously pompous Welsh Malvolio has successfully made the transition from Stratford to the Barbican. Ian Judge's rollicking, Tudor-pretty production of Twelfth Night is stronger on comedy than the darker undercurrents. But sexual confusion seems further emphasised with Orsino (Clive Wood) scarcely able to keep his hands off the "boy" Caesario (Emma Fielding as a spirited, sensitive Viola) and Antonio clearly besotted with Sebastian whom he kisses roundly on the lips.

David Thacker's taut production of Miller's A View from the Bridge (seen in Bristol and Birmingham) has moved into the Strand Theatre in London. Charlotte Cornwell is outstanding as Beatrice, perceptive but misunderstood wife to Bernard Hill's bear-like Carbone. Two members of the cast, Harry Miller and Roger Watkins, are putting their TIE experience to good use and offering workshops about the play to schools. Ring 0171 836 4144 for details.
