Like the film of the same name - and similarly the hit BBC Television series Upstart Crow, the stage version of Shakespeare in Love, draws a lot of plot and humour from women not being allowed to perform on the Elizabethan stage. This play has a slow and laboured start. Interestingly, it takes off when a woman takes the stage. When would-be actress, Viola de Lesseps (played nicely by Imogen Daines) starts reciting Shakespeare’s lines, the play takes life. I would start it from there.

Alan Bennett’s play The Habit of Art, first performed at the National Theatre in 2009, is a play within a play.

The stage is set as a seedy rehearsal room with the principal players having a “run through” with the director absent, the writer present and the assistant stage manager filling in for two actors who are tied up somewhere in a matinee.

Ostensibly, the drama being rehearsed is about a fictional meeting between the poet, W H Auden and the composer Benjamin Britten. However, it becomes a discussion about writing, acting and the exploitation of rent boys. And what it’s like to be one.
