It's not fair to blame Connie, blame producers/ creative team (RUG & LN) if anyone for letting Connie go ahead and do an 8 show week, its too much for any West End leading lady, especially one so young and (relatively) inexperienced at doing Long Running (west-end) shows.
(Baffled) Huh? I've known people do eight shows a week when in their teens. Lead roles, West End shows, one-year contracts.
I don't think it's asking too much of someone to expect them to turn in a normal working week. If Miss Fisher can't do it right now because of ill health that's just bad luck. She managed it well enough for half a year, as I would expect any professional to have done.
I have always hated eggs. I remember back when I was a sperm I tried to head-butt one. It did not end well.
