[ Arts reviews from London-SE1.co.uk ]

A LAUGHING MATTER AT THE NATIONAL THEATRE 
"A Laughing Matter", a play about the production of
"She Stoops to Conquer" is, unfortunately, unworthy of
its name. The kindest descriptor I can give the play is
"tedious". 
http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/439


TWELFTH NIGHT AT SOUTHWARK PLAYHOUSE 
Southwark Playhouse's production of Twelfth Night is
charming.
