Two Knights Playing
on 20 August 2013
Redgrave is one of the strongest actors in this performance. He is able to be both natural and comical. And time Olivier's performance can be a little weak, personally I preferred Anthony Hopkins in this role. However, the rest of the cast is also very good. Joan Plowright executes the 'crush' (sorry for such a trivial word) perfectly.
Should you buy it? Yes. Why? Because it was and is an excellent piece of British theatre...and an excellent Russian play.
