Theatre & Opera
Each year Jennie organises several visits to The Old Vic, a 200-year-old theatre full of character, located in Waterloo, close to rail and tube stations. In the main this theatre produces classic plays and Kevin Spacey, who also stars in some productions, is Artistic Director. If Spacey isn't appearing, the cast will include one or more other top actors. Past visits have included The Cherry Orchard, Inherit the Wind, Cause Celebre, Richard III and The Playboy of the Western World. So far in 2012 we have seen The Duchess of Malfi, Democracy and Hedda Gabler. All the productions we've seen at The Old Vic have been of a very high standard.
We go to a restaurant before or after the performance often Ev, a Turkish restaurant, open throughout the day, located in a tree-lined, pedestrianised area near Southwark Station, with outside seating in good weather, and which serves delicious food at reasonable prices. The group is friendly and it is an ideal opportunity to socialise & make new friends.
