It really is very, very, very bad, isn't it? I saw it at the end of October, and I'm afraid I came away thinking I'd just seen the unedited first draft of Mr. McDonagh's script. The result is a mess, and relies far too much on easy laughs. I could see where he was trying to go with it, but he never got there.

I like the Bridge, and I certainly appreciate that they've attracted new work from some big-name writers, and that the ticket prices are reasonable (some of the £15 seats are an absolute bargain). This, though, was a huge disappointment, and the worst thing I've seen this year.

(To be fair to the Bridge, they also produced the best thing I saw this year - Laura Linney in 'My Name is Lucy Barton'.)
