Bingo and other things  
Ok, I'm thinking of going to see Bingo at Chichester. Patrick Stewart tempted me, but Jason Watkins is in it! I think that's sealed the deal!

I should post more. Things lately include Tony Head in Six Degrees of Separation, working for my mates at Failbetter Games when they ran a puzzle game at the V&A after hours (got half an hour in the Quilts exhibition too, it wasn't enough), watching David Mitchell and assorted types film the Bubble, visiting Blenheim Palce (lived in Oxford for ten years and had never been before), spa day with my best buds, Heaven's Basement et al (a rock gig, really good), and going to the Bull Ring and buying 20 yards of fabric for my C18th pannier dress with sack back. Hee. That was all in the last two weeks. I'm a little bit tired. If anyone wants more details on a particular Thing, I'll tell all in comments...

Patrick Stewart AND Jason Watkins? Wow. I look forward to hearing about it!

Sounds like you've been having a lot of fun recently.

I know! It is expected it will come to London for a run, although sadly I don't when or where. I'm debating waiting versus seeing it now - London is easier for me to get to, after all...

Well if it comes to London I'll definitely make the effort to see it *g* but you could always go twice I suppose *is helpful*

Hee. I'm sure I could cope with going more than once! :)

Seriously, always keep me in mind if you need to go to something with someone, I can't promise I'll be free, but I'm certainly worth trying!

so what was this heavens basement gig like? I am intrigued ;)
Glad you thought it was good. Have some videos up on my youtube now - www.youtube.com/user/silverspirit17 Will eventually do some gig posts with pictures...

Ha! Cool, I will check them out - and they were good, I wouldn't just say that! :)

After hours in the V&A sounds fab!

It was great, I was stationed in room 41, with the costumes, and given I had dressed up (semi-Victorian corset type stuff) I had a lot of people do double takes who weren't even playing! :) I had to hand out a puzzle and then receive the answers, and then give the players another card with a memory on it as a reward. The game overall was discovering who you were once your memories came together (all players had amnesia :)

The people playing certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, I certainly enjoyed pretending to be a mushroom beer brewing barmaid! :)

Bingo sounds interesting. Sir Patrick's Shakespearian pedigree would make for an interesting frisson in light of the way the play works, I think.

Would love to hear about Tony Head in Six Degrees.., too.

Yay! I am hoping to go down and see Bingo, but may wait until it comes to London, not sure yet.

Six Degrees was fab, although a one act play, which I hadn't realised, so a little short. Very good performance, and Tony was gracious and sweet at the stage door. The young black actor playing the lead seemed completley taken aback about being asked for his autograph, and his family standing nearby, thought it was hilarious! I correctly identified it as being written in the '80s, so I think it was a little dated, but not *too* much. Very enjoyable.
