One Act Out Of Three

So, as I wrote, I bought a ticket to go and see A Life In Three Acts at the Koninklijke Schouwburg in The Hague. I’m glad I did. Bette Bourne is indeed a living legend, and the conversation between him and Mark Ravenhill was, by turns, touching, absolutely filthy, heart-warming, nostalgic, life-affirming, and much more besides.
 
If I have one regret, it’s that I wasn’t able to attend all three consecutive performances in the theatre. Apparently, each evening tells the story of his life using a different path through the events of his very full life. Still, what I did see was worth the 2 hour drive to The Hague and the 2 hour drive back again.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
