Love's Labour's Lost

MrM has booked theatre tickets for tonight:
Love's Labour's Lost
at the Rose Theatre, Kingston.

It is a special half term treat for MissM
and he is very pleased with himself
because the reviews are excellent.


He shows us the tickets


MissM
Oh! What a shame!

MrM
What do you mean?

MissM
It is the special production tonight
and so it won't be quite as useful
for my A Level synoptic coursework

MrM
What do you mean?

MissM
It has been specially themed
for tonight with a sponsored ending.

MrM
What do you mean?

MissM
It is the gothic version

Instead of living happily ever after
they all die

And the audience gets to choose
who dies first.

MrM looks aghast

MissM
They are planning to sell
those big foamy hands in the foyer
so that we can all vote with our thumbs
like they used to in the Coliseum.

MrM
You are pulling my leg...
Right?

It would appear that MrM
has underestimated how quickly
MissM can recover from jet lag.

Hope they have a wonderful time! The Rose Theatre is just a 15-20 minute walk from us, and we've never been to a show. Not very impressive on our part! K x

How spooky. I was going to book tickets for this. We could have heckled you from wherever it is they normally place the rabble.

Unfortunately I cancelled the booking after I discovered that there would not, in fact, be foam hands available in the foyer after all.

Wonderful! What a wicked sense of humour. Enjoy the show.

With a mind that sharp I feel Miss M will find herself in the High Court someday. It remains to be seen whether it is in silks or handcuffs ;-)

And you will be there right now, having a sophisticated evening, while I have now to get two over-sugared, hyped up princesses into bed after a Halloween party ...

I think Miss M's version sounds like more fun...

I think you should all make some cardboard hands any way and take them along!

Clever girl, to get that far without giving away the game!

Can you please get me a daughter like Miss M? Like, are there any spares at her boarding school? (Hope you had fun, even without the gothic death fest.)
