Julian Harries in The Unhappy Medium - pic contributedWe last saw Common Ground Theatre in Aldeburgh where their four handed Justin and the Argonauts was well routined and getting plenty of laughs, especially from the appreciative Hertfordshire holiday maker next to us.  The company's current show The Unhappy Medium has been on the road since the beginning of the month.  The tour is winding down but it can be seen tonight in Laxfield and a Saturday matinee has been added to the three day run next month at the Sir John Mills Theatre Ipswich.

Saturday there's a matinee showing at the Aldeburgh Cinema of Speed Sisters, an unlikely doc about a women's race car team in occupied Palestine.
