Two quick cheap London theatre recommendations

Today was spent seeing Antony and Cleopatra at the Globe - £5 'groundling', you want to stand near the right hand ramp as you enter for the best views - and the Ring Cycle plays at the Scoop by City Hall - free, take some cushions to sit on and something to keep warm in, and sit somewhere in front of the lighting control box.

The latter are particularly worth checking out. They're four 50 minute plays covering the stories of the (much longer) Wagner operas. It's quite surprising to be reminded that it's a cast of nine doing them. Each has its very good bits and the first one both works best as a standalone piece and will enable you to know if you want to see the others.

They start at 6pm, 7pm, 8:30pm and 9:30pm, and you can see some one night and some another. Update: it's on Wed-Sun until the 31st August.
