Susannah Clapp reviews The Old Vic's new production of The Hairy Ape, Eugene O'Neill's classic expressionist masterpiece. Yank, played by Bertie Carvel, is a labourer who revels in his status as the strongest stoker on a transatlantic ocean liner. This week the opening of the house where Jimi Hendrix lived as a museum was announced.
