I'm not sure I've seen any of Lucie's work, I looked at a list of his plays and didn't recognise the titles. Can you name a recent-ish one? Of Ridley's I've seen The Pitchfork Disney, some of the students at the college where I work did a production of it. I have booked for both his and the Lucie. I've also gone for the Harvey Milk one and the musical.

Yes, I noticed that on the website, will probably take advantage of it in future

Years ago I saw Fashion at the Tricycle, concerning an advertising/PR agency with the Tory Party contract for such, IIRC, and the rather amusing Progress somewhere else, and liked the way Doug Lucie had written them. They are all I've seen by him, along with the reading some time ago of his forthcoming play at the Southwark Playhouse. I don't know what he has had on stage in recent years but I am sure I have heard several of his more recent plays in Radio 4's 'Afternoon Play' slot, not least because when I see his name as writer I tend to download whatever it is he has done.

Having seen and enjoyed several Doug Lucie plays, I read The Shallow End years ago and thought it sharp and interesting, so am tempted.
By the way, don't forget the SP's "airline pricing" - the longer you wait, the higher the price goes (if it's busy enough)

Unless you're likely to buy five or more tickets in the future, which means the Pay As You Go scheme will see you paying £7.50 for every show you attend no matter how late you book (although they may apply some limitations for super-popular shows). ;)

The cast for the upcoming Floyd Collins looks rather good, esp Ryan Sampson (aka Mr Circlelinejoke). I don't know this piece at all.... is it any good? Good music, story etc??? Man stuck in cave doesn't sound like the most thrilling musical, thought The Vault sounds like a great space for it. Anyway, is this worth seeing?

It is my all time number one without question, hesitation, or shadow of a doubt ABSOLUTE favourite musical. Adam Guettel is a god among men.

I wasn't familiar with the music so listened to a sample on Amazon (often a useful aid in this respect) and decided it wasn't for me.

In an effort to post more in the fringe section, I've been having a loook at the SP season and I'm tempted by a few. May consider the subscription too. Did anyone see Tender Napalm the first time around as I remember it had some great reviews.
