Triple bill of JM Synge at Southwark at the moment. Lovely stuff. Includes the famous Riders To The Sea, in which Nora Joyce once played the part of Cathleen. Her husband was a Synge fan, of course. The language supple and musical and strange. The acting mustered by Charlotte Gwinner is thoroughly excellent, even in the open dress rehearsal I saw. I'll go back to see the third play and post more after.
Otherwise, the past few days quite trying. Nothing awful, but a couple of mental bruises and daring to hope for good news that doesn't come. And Spike has conjunctivitis, poor lamb. Plus we can't find a plumber to fit the shower we bought months ago - they're all either too expensive or too feckless, or both.
Missing pm's posts as well, of course. Going to see Kingfisher Blue tomorrow and will buy him a drink on behalf of the blogosphere.
