See How They Run

Lippy on - check, Fruit & Nut Dark in my purse - check, Deacon made comfortable - check.  We're off for an afternoon of laughs and entertainment.  Back soon with my review of Elizabeth Taylor's The Wedding Group but I'll just quickly say that I really enjoyed it!  See you...


  1. See How They Run is very funny! (My mother, a keen amateur actress in her younger days, once played Miss Skillon.)

  2. Oh Karen, what a hoot! I came out of the theatre minus most of my eye makeup from all the laughing. The woman who played Miss Skillon pulled off one of the best performances of someone who is drunk that I've ever seen. You would have been in stitches to see your Mum in that role!

  3. Sounds like the perfect way to spend the afternoon!

  4. Oh do tell us more about See How They Run, it's been a while since I've been to the theatre

    1. Taking place all in one very cosy sitting room the play is about mistaken identity. At one point there were four vicars running in and out of doors, chasing or being chased by a German soldier also dressed as a vicar. A sloshed but prim and proper busybody who happened to be in the right place at the wrong time was stuffed in to a closet to save the Bishop from such a sight. Naturally she pops out at the most inconvenient of moments and becomes ever more dishevelled! The Cockney maid, Ida, was trying to keep it all straight and was absolutely hilarious. See if there is a clip on youtube, Nicola, and Christmas is coming, snag yourself a ticket to something!
