Really enjoyed this. Good amusing script, lots of interest and character development, great acting and made me think about my own friendships....and clothes I wore in the 80s. I may have thrown (most) of the clothes away but I still have the big hair! :lol:

Was I sitting behind you at A CHORUS LINE, by any chance? :)

On topic, I saw this downstairs at Hampstead 18 months ago and have been in love with it ever since. I hope it comes in to town. The Duchess needs a hit.

As I've said before, I think will come to town but not straight away because of cast and theatre availability, the Duchess would be perfect for it but I could see in a bigger theatre like the Vaudevile, Pinter or Duke of Yorks.

Nope, there's at least one more person with 80s hair around the place! :lol:

There's more than one.  Some of us never recover from our youth.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Classy acting, good writing, and thought provoking. Uneven maybe but forgivable.

Great acting (as hoped) from the stellar cast, although I also found the play uneven - whilst there's been praise for the "laugh or cry" moments, I did find the dramatic plot turns rather parachuted in. However, the range of emotions from the cast were good, and Anna Maxwell Martin particularly funny and natural.
