Brilliant stuff (as usual) at the Royal Court. I predict Romola Garai will win awards for this performance - don't miss.

I went to see the Village Bike. Having recently given birth, I don't think that Skinner was inverting gender stereotypes or attempting to be radical. Instead she was trying to tell the truth about a certain point in a woman's life, tackling a subject matter that is rarely addressed and, to a certain extent, still taboo in our society. This play is not perfect and I was disappointed that Becky fell for Oliver. However, I think that this was the most likely and truthful outcome, given the circumstances. I think Time Out's reviewer missed the point.
