One more time...

In search of culture I headed out to a university production of ´The Death of Trotsky´ on Av. Salgado Filho last night. It was advertised as a comedy, involving the various ways in which Trotsky might have died other than the way in which he did, in hospital. The main selling point was that it was free.

What I was subjected to was mercifully short - at around 40 minutes or so for a three-actor play - but gave the Trotsky actor the opportunity to die nine times in that period.

Not even actors playing Hamlet and his death scene can match that.
