The Playboy of the Western World was excellent last night. Both Roddy Doyle and Bisi Adigun have brought the play that was written more than 100 years ago up to date; the west of Ireland is now west Dublin and the central character is from Nigeria. It hasn't lost the spirit and message of the original however. The performances are excellent, I laughed and laughed but still didn't miss the central point the play makes. In fact, its theme couldn't be more relevant today. Go and see it!
On a completely different point entirely, I'm a guest judge on Post of the Week; here is the shortlist.
