A must for all pseuds,
This review is from: National Service: Diary of a Decade at the National Theatre (Paperback)
This is a wonderful description of life inside a publicly subsidised bubble. It is full of right on opinions shared by the chattering classes which confirm the old definition of a liberal as someone who hates his own country. It has some very good jokes and theatrical anecdotes and a sharp degree of bitchiness about other art forms --"...the world of opera:self important and irredemiably elitist." Sounds like a good description of the National Theatre!
What other head of an organisation could have so many self admitted poor results and still keep his job. Oh yes, one whose work was heavily subsidised by those who neither saw nor cared about his business.

Ms. Fiona Allen says:
I don't quite get the point here; something that happens in London shouldn't be subsidised because not everyone sees it? By that standard, am I allowed to insist that none of my taxes are used for nuclear weapons, because i don't approve of them?
