Experience: The Private Ear 7/10
The Public Eye 8/10
By Peter Shaffer
Directed by Alistair Whatley
The Original Theatre Company
Venue: Yvonne Arnaud Theatre
Date: Monday 2nd September 2013
This was a double bill of two one-act plays, which were joined together by a neat little scene change at the start of the second half. We’d seen The Private Ear partnered with Black Comedy in the 1980s, so this was a new combination for us. As it turned out, I’d seen the film Follow Me! on TV many years ago, so the story of The Public Eye was familiar too, but stage is a different beast to film.
