Not a Tragic Hero
on 7 August 2017
I love Hopkins and this is one of my favourite Play,however,he doesn't convince as a General who is at once a powerful leader of armies yet a flawed Husband,here,he just appears as an insecure,ignorant and a cuckolded man,not a tragic hero,there are better versions!
Hoskins is more convincing as is Rosemary Leach, his wife!
Penelope Wilton is better but not wholly convincing as a Mediterranean Wife!
At least it is almost a full reading but still somewhat dated!!
