Where is this touring to? I can only find two venues.

It's the kind of thing which sounds quite fun, and could do well in town.

They are, but they're daytime/Sunday performances. The Vaudeville will have 3 shows at once plus Nica's coffee morning.

Wow, I booked before most of the cast had been announced and I love Nancy Carroll, so what a bonus to find that I'll be seeing her.

Sounds very promising with a rich source of material for a funny play.

Shall definitely be checking this out, too! I study in Guildford (where the tour is opening in October) and they do a scheme of £5 Thursday night tickets for 16-30 year olds at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre so I will go and report back!

Somebody make me come through, I'll always be there, As frightened as you, of Being Alive.
