Hats off to the West End Whingers for hosting such a cracking do. I'd come straight from the Court, pondering the devastation mental illness wreaks on its sufferers, and the shame and stigma still heaped upon them. The second half of Anthony Neilson's play dramatised this with masterful dignity and discipline, an extraordinary contrast with the excess and abandon of the first, a Lewis Carrollesque trip to The Wonderful World of Dissocia. Gotta love that singing polar bear...
Anyhoo after digesting all that the party in "London's fabulous, fashionable West End" was just the tonic, and such a pleasure to see some of my fellow bloggers: JMC, Fin, Natasha, Ben Y, Lance, Ben E, and of course Andrew and Phil!

Back to the May Queen rehearsals tomorrow, but not before a workshop in the a.m. and a telephone interview during the train journey. Then in the evening one for the radio, and a new place to stay. I'll also try and catch the Liverpool v Chelsea semi-final. I expect there'll be one or two pubs in Liverpool showing the game...
