It's Guaranteed to Close On Page Four

The Witches of Eastwick. Performed by the Catchment Players of Darebin. This Thursday. Eight PM.

It's a show so unmissable, I almost missed it!

They are a little ambitious with their ticket prices, given they're an amateur company, aren't they?

TimT said...

Maybe, but everybody charges what they think people will pay.

I liked their name so much I was thinking of joining them! But probably not, as no-one would agree to staging a Spider musical!

Karen said...

Ha ha ha. But just think- if only the missing Goldilocks chapter of Capital could be combined with the Spider musical and the whole thing be watched by an audience eating in bed! I think we could charge at least $35, given we'd be providing dinner as well as a show. It would be a new style of theatre restaurant, with only Pimm's available at the bar.

Have you been known to practice a bit of amateur theatre? I haven't had an outing since my turn as a flower, if one doesn't count (hiding behind hand) physical culture.

The Pimm's bar at Hôtel Harlot, Karen, has recently enlarged its repertoir to include brandy with fresh-pressed apple juice. This is my concession to encroaching winter. Pimm's is a summer drink.

TimT said...

Pimm's Bar? Oh, how dreadful - what a scene of dissolution and decadence that must be!

In this proposed musical, we could even have a cameo by Bob Hope, playing golf, in bed - just to round things out.

Brandy with fresh-pressed apple juice? Clearly Bar Harlot is only for the most sophisticated of inebriates. I shall have to work on my inebriated sophistication or my sophisticated inebriation (I'm not sure which, but I'm sure they balance both nicely at Bar Harlot). I have opened my nice new bottle of port, but I do not like to consume it alone. This means I am most annoyed when people fail to accept my offer of a nightcap.

Just as long as Mickey Rooney has a walk-on part, I'm happy. Nice dodging of the question, incidentally, Tim. Surely you were a bumblebee or something of that sort when you were six. Your readership has a right to know!

TimT said...

I'm not dodging the question, really I'm not, I'm just juggling the demands of furtive work blogging with the somewhat bleary results of last night's semi-insomnia.

TimT said...

I've been involved in theatre in a somewhat lazy way ever since, as a kid, my parents drove me every week to the Robinvale Kids' Drama meetings!

Karen said...

My apologies. That was not intended as a complaint or a demand. I was just teasing you, 'tis all. I'm sorry to hear about the insomnia- I've been a bit that way lately too. I go to the gym and then I wear myself out and it isn't nearly so bad.

I never seem to suffer insomnia anymore. I find my job is pretty exhausting. There's something terribly tiring about being nice to obnoxious, god-complexed fuckwits [and their employees] all day.
Also, I think my liver's fucked which can't be helping and, yes, I'm too scared to consult the o-g-c-fs about it.

TimT said...

I'm normally an excellent sleeper (now there's one thing I can do well!) but not, apparently last night. Actually, in a way, my liver was to blame, too... but let's not go into the details...

nailpolishblues said...

Please do.

TimT said...

Let's just say I blame a bunch of bananas. They looked so yellow, and sweet, and tasty, but what they caused...

nailpolishblues said...

I really must stop saying yes, and please, and do when really I should be saying I do not want to know, I'm not guessing, and no, I' don't care what you've got in your...
