Well here's some news for you, the 'Story' is powerful, perhaps and even maybe hopefully a little dated but it's certainly worth experiencing in some form.
Yesterday evening we had the pleasure of seeing it at Regent's Park Open-Air Theatre - the rain kept off and I remained awake (surely the ultimate accolade for the production).
Although a little wary at the start of the overtly theatrical commencement and the minimalist staging, I was drawn in and felt the injustice and the heroism of Atticus Finch - strange to think that Harper Lee in these celebrity besotted days has remained something of both an inspiration and an enigma through her single book literary career.
The production in fact worked well and my early fears were groundless, action words (and music) all integrated well and characterisation although in some places a little 2 dimensional was good.

Anyway many thanks Nick for the treat!
Old flats in West Ealing make way for the new.
I've noted before that West Ealing is improving and more evidence yesterday as demolition of part of the unloved Green Man estate - proceeded, this seems to be straightforward work -in the video note the water being used to keep dust down.

Let's hope the replacement looks and works better than these discredited designs.
