I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

The Bay at Nice review – David Hare's battle of duty and desire

Menier Chocolate Factory, London
Penelope Wilton gives a fine turn as an understated heroine in this revival of Hare’s play about a one-time pupil of Matisse

David Hare’s 1986 play was originally part of a double bill ironically juxtaposing Soviet constraint and American freedom. Even though I regret the decision to ditch the companion piece, Wrecked Eggs, The Bay at Nice stands up well as that unfashionable thing: a play of ideas. It also yields a fine performance from Penelope Wilton, who catches the contradictions of its central character with a refined economy of gesture.

Wilton plays Valentina, a one-time pupil of Matisse, who in 1956 is asked by a Leningrad museum to decide if one of the master’s recently acquired paintings is authentic. Valentina is under pressure to protect the museum from any possible embarrassment. At the same time, she is being asked by her daughter, Sophia, to underwrite her wish to divorce her dull schoolteacher husband so she can marry an older man. Public and private worlds intersect as Valentina is required to judge the validity of both a painting and a passion.

UK inflation rises to 1.9%, as London house prices slide - business live

Rising food and alcohol prices have pushed the cost of living in Britain up, as the housing slowdown gathers pace

The small pick-up in inflation raises the chances of a UK interest rate rise before Christmas.

So argues Yael Selfin, Chief Economist at KPMG UK:

“Solid wage growth and minimal spare capacity could encourage the Bank of England to raise rates once more by November this year to 1%.

“Strong services inflation compared to goods inflation point at the simmering inflationary pressures as a result of rising wages and the record tight UK labour market.

Potential first-time buyers will be pleased to hear that house price growth is cooling.

But after several years of housing inflation, homes will still be unaffordable to many....

House price growth has slowed recently but increases in house prices have still substantially outpaced increases in earnings since 2011 pic.twitter.com/uUqCP2B3UL

This yawning gap between house prices and earnings is largest in London, and has only closed very slightly recently as house price growth in the capital has stalled. pic.twitter.com/VGywGqvxXI
