Going with people. Thinking the new Payne play at Donmar but is there anything I might have missed that I would like and other people whose tastes might be slightly more conservative.... In August? Advice appreciated. Ta

Is this a trick question? If the people's tastes might be slightly more conservative than yours, wouldn't you be taking a risk if you were to be responsible for exposing them to a new play which might turn out to have any number of features to their distaste? Why not take them to something known which you could be more sure would appeal to them. It's a shame that public executions have been suspended because that could have been the most suitable attraction for people with conservative leanings.

Not a trick q. I sometimes miss seeing info about good stuff. Yes, I'm human. The thing is, HG, I have booked the tix already for stuff I want to see so when people ask me to find a nice thing to go to together I'm checking out the stuff I might have missed seeing. I'm thinking Donmar cos usually good and I would book them for myself anyway. The booking period opens soon so will prob get tix I want. But also thinking the two at the National I haven't booked, the gospel and the gypsy plays. They might be booked up. So suggestions welcomed.

What is this?  Who is Payne and I can't see anything at the Donmar by an author with that name.  (I'm being thick aren't I.)

The Amen Corner was a huge hit at the Tricycle about 25 years ago, when I was at the Pharaoh's number 2 stage in the life-cycle of the theatregoer. It's a big fat get-your-money's-worth doorstopper of a play, formally very conservative, and made extra-thrilling by the gospel music. I think it would fit the bill very well for you and your friends.

I love gospel so don't know why I haven't booked this. I'll let you know what 'they' decide from the choices I offer.( Depends on dates too of course.)
