The Flying Karamatov Brothers - better than Pirates 4
The flawed excellence of The Emperor and the Galilean

When theatre trailers go too far?

Am off to see The Seagull at the Arcola tonight. Never seen the play before and very much looking forward to it. Decided to watch the trailer and kind of feel they've given the ending away - which is a real shame. Nothing beats a shock or surprise at the end of a play when you see it for the first time.

I'm not against theatre trailers, it's nice to get a flavour of a production to whet the appetite but I do hope they don't start falling into the same trap as some film makers and give away virtually the entire plot in 1 minute 20 seconds.
