Ah, this is a fair point. Two 12 minute intervals then? Mind you, plays with two intervals don't necessarily have two full-length intervals. I seem to remember Jerusalem having a 20 minute interval and a 10 minute break, so maybe this will have a 20 minute interval and a 5 minute break? Hope the Gielgud has enough toilets for pleasant queuing!
On ringing RC earlier (not me) to query start time and length they seemed bit surprised website saying 3 h 45 and have agreed to refund tickets if still that long when it starts rather than 11pm finish, said couldn't change evening start time as people never read emails, would turn up late etc. guess they worry less with matinees as less of them?

Almost 4 hours and almost £100? There'd better be a heck of a lot of nudity and several hot actors willing to disrobe for that. Daylight robbery. After killing off Dame Judi in 'Skyfall' and ditching Kate Winslet, Sam Mendes ought to be ashamed. A. Shamed.
Delfont Mackintosh have now recanted the running time, and the Royal Court contacted me earlier to assure me the running time is not yet set. So maybe there's going to be some studious cutting in the not-too-distant future.
