Saw Arcadia last night again with faintheart. This time around, the relationship between the main characters came off more like I was expecting (based on my reading of the play).

The actor playing Septimus seemed to be having an easier time, and relaxed into his part more than last week, but Bernard fluffed a few of his, alas. (Including my favorite outburst, moh.) He came off much less overbearing this time through. Still an abrasive, obnoxious academic, but with more soul underneath.

We sat close in, which made things interesting. It's a "wide-screen" sort of play, there were times when I didn't catch things going on one place because I was focused elsewhere.

Then I came home and dreamt about a strange combination of Neverwinter Nights and Arcadia all night.
