But can we be certain or is there a twist in the plot?

I somehow felt that the start of Act 2 didn't quite live up to the great promise of Act 1. Hope it picks up a bit.

Scene 2 is a welcome return to form.

Did you know that at the time of his death Elvis Presley had fifteen pounds of compacted faeces in his bowels?

This is a respectable close not a sink estate

Superb dialogue, said by brilliantly drawn characters.

It is indeed a return to form and will surely give much pleasure to us all. Very Happy

I still think the idea of performing it at a Wrinkly Drinkly is awesome, 10/10. Very Happy

If it is performed at a Wrinkly Drinkly then I will pay the vast quantities of money required to come south and watch it.*

Yes, that line will stay with me for some time...

Rosemary: You mean he shoved his porker in your rear entrance and up the passage?

There are lines of dialogue and then there are truly Lines Of Dialogue. That has got to be one of the Lines-est of Dialogues I've ever come across.

Awesome 10/10. Who's going to play Rosemary, that's the question?

Truly the author is correct in calling this a 'dramatic play', for no previous work for the theatre (or, indeed, the cellar bar at the Fitzroy Tavern) has ever contained drama quite like this.

I do hope this gets recorded. This + Wrinklies = Gold.

That latest scene with the feral hoodies was terribly exciting.

I genuinely love Spara sometimes.

The way that he's using everyone's desire to stage the play at the Wrinkly Drinkly to defend Orchids on GB is nothing short of heartwarming.

Me too!

Not sure about the use of 'Wee off'. Is this a euphemism to get round a profanity filter or does it have some dramatic significance which people such as myself, ie uneducated in the arts side of things, fail to understand. Or do feral hoodie youths really talk like that?

The profanity filter automatically converts the expression Sparacus used into 'wee off'.

Well, technically we have taken the p*## out of Orchids in June, and replaced it with 'wee'.

Laughing

In other news, I have started work on adapting the play for a radio style production. Indeed Mrs C=O saw me doing this earlier, and questioned my sanity. Razz
