How sound is your knowledge of London theatre? As a fan of things thespian, I could list the Lyric, the Garrick, the Peacock. I can tell you The Mousetrap has been playing for a month of Sunday matinees, and the good people of Half-Tix knew be my first name in the winter of 1986/87, but I’ve never heard of the theatre revealed in today’s 11ac of the Times crossword.
That said, the wordplay is pretty kind, and good diggers with exhume the truth, but don’t expect No 8986 to be a stroll in the park. In keeping with Anzac Day, the puzzle is a genuine battle. Join the fray from now till Saturday, with this post your chance to register your efforts and triumphs as the campaign rages.
