The TLS recently moved from an office just north of the Thames to a newer one just south, near London Bridge. That made it easy for me, a couple of days ago, to stroll along the river to Shakespeare's Globe in the afternoon and its neighbour the Rose Playhouse in the evening – to see two plays that both happen to concern utopian dreams and (a more common coincidence) troubled relationships between men and women. As far as I can see, there’s only one more date when this accidental double bill is repeated.
I hope there'll be a word in the TLS soon about the first of those plays, Pitcairn at the Globe (it then goes on tour); because it's only running for another week, though, here's a word about The Woman in the Moon at the Rose. And the word is: goandseeitifyoucan.
