We got a lot of good press for this relatively small production of Robert Holman's Jonah and Otto at Royal Exchange Studio. It helps when you have the ruler of the Universe (or Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars) to command the critics attention but most importantly you need fabulous acting, a great set and an 'achingly beautiful new play' as the Guardian writer Lyn Gardner put it. I still must admit to a bit of a buzz from meeting Ian McDiarmid though.
