Had a fantastic day! The Crucible was outstanding, the best play I have ever seen. Such raw talent and passion from the actors, and the layout of the stage made the story seem so real, the atmosphere was so intense! It was as if the audience became part if the play. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to meet Richard as he was already in the building when I arrived and wouldn’t be coming out again until after I got home. Richard did not disappoint and delivered a breathtaking performance! He nailed the ‘Because it is my name’ speech. Although I didn’t see him in person, I am over the moon because he looked directly at me at the beginning of the play (although he couldn’t see me because I was in the dark) and I couldn’t breathe. Also, we had a great view of the shirtless scene! Hopefully I will be attending the play again, in the evening, if my GCSE grades are good enough!
just got home from crucible round two!!!!!! play was as good as the first time round anD finally got to go to stage door!!!! didnt get a photo bc richard was going so fast but did get his autograph! he was super tired so was understandable that he didnt do thewhole line, his voice was pretty sore he really needs some rest :( also got to give him my crucible painting ahhhh
we had different seats so we had a really rad view from the side, we got to stare at everyones faces a lot and richards profile :’) from our angle the washing scene we could see part of his abs when he turned to the side hehhehheheehee he was t on ed :))))) also after that the whole performance his tunic neckline was so low as in almost halfway down his chest so i stared for most of the time :)))))))))
The Crucible: Performance vs. Poster
I went to london to see the crucible with my sister at the old vic. it was amazing.The story is so intense and the scenery is brillant. The sound design and light how the actors moved around the cricle stage, a very great performance.
At the end of the play Mr Armitage was so kind to come and sign autographs and to take pictures with the audience. I told him i came all the way from france and he replied ” merci beaucoup”. What a night.
( first time i like my face on a picture XD)

Here. Blue jacket, button-front shirt that looks like it could be light blue or blue / white checked, pants look like they could be grey.
Obviously I am running out of headline text.
