Review: Tom Burke in Reasons To Be Happy, Hampstead Theatre
Review: Identity and justice in the powerful Les Blancs, National Theatre

What is it with long and late finishing plays these days?

Plays that are more than three hours long seem to be popular this year as does starting them at 7.30pm rather then scheduling them a bit earlier.  This is a particular bug bear of mine and the issue arose again today when I checked the running time of Le Blancs at the National Theatre: 3 hours and 15 minutes with a 7.30pm start. So I took to Twitter to vent my frustration and turns out I'm not alone:

I think theatreland could do with carrying out some customer discovery.
