Knight of the Burning Pestle

So…

Today started off with a delicious brunch at the Bayswater flat of Steven’s family (read here). Feeling quite full I was a bit worried that I might fall asleep during the performance of Knight of the Burning Pestle, but then we were reminded that we would be standing for most of the play – great news! (sarcasm quite intended)

The performance was held at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in Shakespeare’s Globe. At first I was excited to see the play, but I realized early on that I would not be able to see much of it – the ‘seats’ were too high up in the balcony. I could hear the play, which explained why people in Shakespeare’s time would say ‘hear a play’ instead of ‘see a play’.

After the first intermission Steven and Susan switched seats with Martha and I, and even though we were a row lower it was still standing seats and it didn’t make that much of a difference. By the end of the second intermission Steven allowed us to leave, since apparently ‘restricted view’ means NO view. On the way home I saw someone dressed as Bumblebee from Transformers, taking photos by the water – it was super adorable when the kids kept coming back!

Bumblebee, is that you?
