Hi Ian

I enjoyed reading your post on the Alchemist. Spot on, I have to say - one of my preferred Johnson plays after Volpone. You also mentioned the History Matters campaign in passing which is why I’d like to invite you to take a look at a new website called “Map My London” which has just been launched by The Museum of London: (

Map My London hopes to revolutionise the way the history of the city is gathered and displayed.

It would be great if you could take a look at the site and see if you would be interested in getting involved with uploading some of your best theatre memories or your general impressions of the capital, to help us create an emotional memory bank.

You will be able to upload your experiences about the city onto the Map My London site under headings including “Love and Loss”, “Beauty and Horror” and “Fate and Coincidence”.

The site will support contributions in the form of text, digital photographs, video clips and sound recordings and the best thing is that you will be able to have a link directly to your own personal map to put onto your blog. If this is something that you think that you’d like to get involved with, please visit

I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback on the website.
Well done on the informative blog – I’ve got it bookmarked, so you might see some more comments from me in the future ;)

Kind regards
Rax, Museum of London

Couldn't agree more. I think Nick Hytner really knows how to bring a play to life...without making himself the star of the show.
