PORTIA, Theatre503 - Review

And it was only when I began to feel actual, physical pain every time you left the room that it finally dawned on me: I was in love, for the first time in my life. I knew it was hopeless, but that didn't matter to me. And it's not that I want to have you. All I want is to deserve you. Tell me what to do. Show me how to behave. I'll do anything you say.

Emilia Galotti, The Space Arts Centre - Review

Outside of Schiller and Goethe, German playwrights (from pre-20th century) don't tend to receive as much coverage on the UK stage as they could do. Bearing this in mind, theatre company Ottisdotter have taken the inspired step of producing the 18th century tragedy by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing,  Emilia Galotti.

goo:ga, Camden People's Theatre - Review

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love
