The Rivals

Posted on 2011/01/29 14:20:08 (January 2011).

[Friday 14th January]
Went for a late lunch at the Regency Cafe today - and more or less had what I'd usually order for breakfast (mushrooms, beans, hash browns - but unfortunately there's no "bubble" to be had this time of day).

In the evening Chie went to her Hiroshimakenjinkai. As I was taking a course of antibiotics for my throat I thought I'd better not drink at all, but equally didn't feel like just going home either. So I tried to think of something I could do and decided I'd go and see The Rivals which was on at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.

Despite a bit of a slow start I really enjoyed it - particularly, of course, Mrs Malaprop, played by Penelope Keith. I'd also seen Penelope Keith as Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest, and it occurred to me what similar parts these are, albeit in plays written and set a hundred years apart from each other.

After the play finished I went for some Indian food at Woodlands, conveniently just around the corner the theatre.
