See the problem with looking down on the stage from up in the gods when the play is set in a 1930s, English public school, is that it is difficult to tell who's who. They all have the same short back and sides haircuts and are wearing pretty much the same set of clothes.
The two main characters of Julian Mitchell's play, about what would make a public schoolboy spy against his country, were distinguishable for having wavy strawberry blond hair - Judd (Will Attenborough) and straight, floppy blond hair - Bennett (Rob Callender). The rest of their school boy compatriots were more difficult to distinguish with out a full view of the face which you don't see much of from on high.
It was a problem and it wasn't. I still enjoyed the play, very much but I did feel like I missed out on some of the plot and nuances purely for not being able to easily identify who was talking to whom. Another Country does take a little while to get into it's stride but is rewarding once it does.
Judd is against the hierarchy and regime of the school: prefects, fags and corporal punishment. He would rather spend his time reading socialist tomes and swotting for his Cambridge entrance exams than playing sports. He is passionate and unyielding when it comes to his communist views and opts out of mainstream school activities whenever possible. As a result, he is seen as a bit strange but is generally tolerated.
