my brief return
Tragically, I haven’t been anywhere remotely cultural since, I don’t know, about Christmas so haven’t had much to say here. However I’m looking forward to seeing Roald Dahl’s Twisted Tales at the Playhouse (written by one of the writers of the League of Gentlemen, no less. If you saw Ghost Stories there you’ll probably like this). Of all the theatres in Liverpool, the Playhouse/Everyman have for my money put on the most consistently enjoyable shows. They really know how to pick ’em.
So anyway, should be fun. I recall hiding behind the sofa when I was little watching Tales of the Unexpected, with its dancing lady silhouettes and eerily fairground-y theme tune at the start. They’ve been shown again recently and as an adult some of the plots are more amusing than chilling (the man who turned into a bee, anyone?) Overall they’re still good though.
7th May sees the return of the Funny Women Awards, this time hosted by the Bluecoat. If you know anyone who fancies dipping a toe into the world of stand-up (in a supportive environment full of other ladies) then contact them here. For anyone else, It’ll be a brill night with lots of funny acts on and if you don’t like it, you have permission to punch me fully in the face! *
Adios for now amigos. This weekend I only plan to sort the garden out and meet friends for lunch but as soon as I have anything good to share, I will!!
