Going out on 2010 theatre high: Bea at the Soho Theatre

More theatre excitement for 2011: Colin Morgan hits the stage

Images-1 I didn't think levels of excited anticipation could get higher than the announcement that Benedict Cumberbatch/Johnny Lee Miller will play Frankenstein and his monster at the National Theatre next year.

But tonight, channeling Poly's detective skills, I happened upon a bit of casting news hidden away from all my usual sources that is one step shy of the excitment of a Ben Whishaw announcement: little Colin Morgan is to tread the boards upstairs at the Royal Court in Our Private Life. (There isn't anything on the RC site yet.)

Have been desperate to see Col tread the boards since his debut in Vernon God Little and to get to see him at the tiny Jerwood Upstairs where I last saw Mr W tread the London boards is even better.
