This was my first visit to the Royal Court and it felt very exciting walking into a theatre where history has been made. I really enjoyed The Heretic. I thought that it mixed comedy and sadness to great effect. The first half was much better than the second half and it felt a little bit that the play struggled to find a satisfactory ending. I was left wondering why the security guard ended up in the house. I don’t think this was explored fully. The moments with the daughter at the end of the play were very moving and I thought tension was built up well. It was a little ironic going from York to London to see a play set in York. Stevenson was fantastic and this was the first time I had seen her on stage since her RSC days and when she played Celia to Fiona Shaw’s Rosalind.
