The English Touring Theatre brought Roger McGough's fabulous adaptation of Molière's
"The Hypochondriac" to Malvern, which has our nearest theatre.
McGough has written his version in rhyming couplets throughout, intelligent and outrageously funny, with a highly irregular metre, with the rhyme either coming excruciatingly late at the end of a long sentence or immediately, in the next word.
As one would expect from the ETT, the company gave a highly accomplished performance.
We had been to the Matinée, stopping at a branch of the UK's best supermarket before leaving the town; this meant that we travelled home during the hour of sunset.
Which was absolutely spectacular, as you can see from these pictures. Since I've started to blog, I always carry a little camera in my bag, for which foresight I was truly grateful on this occasion.
