Quote of the day: “Adapting plays is very easy. You start with the audience. You have to learn how to please a theatre full of anything from 300 to 1500 people. It takes about 30 years of patient, careful study. Don’t watch the play, watch the audience is the rule.” (Mike Poulton’s ‘Programme Note’ to Ivan Turgenev’s Fortune’s Fool)
