Cowart's Common Room
Last Night of the Proms

Uploaded Image
It's the last night of the CADS autumn production tonight. I am not involved at all except perhaps to give Rosie a hand with the food and do some light clearing up afterwards. We always serve a supper of bread and cheese and paté after the last show on the Saturday and it's very cosy with the bar area filled with happy punters generally imbibing and feasting on what must be one of the most economical meals served anywhere. What is more it is free (at least to them).

The play is The Secretary Bird which dates from 1967 and is by William Douglas Home who was Lord (and inbetween Alec Douglas) Home (the 1963-64 Prime Minister)'s younger brother. His constituency was Kinross and East Perthshire and my mother's second husband stood against him in the Labour interest in an election sometime in the 1950s. He didn't get anywhere of course but it was a grand gesture.

I don't know why I am telling you this - I am sure I have better things to do. But one day I hope that the mid-Wales/Shropshire chapter of Purple Coo will venture south and come to one of our shows. You would all be very welcome (we even allow dogs in the theatre, Bruno)
Very Happy - provided they don't bark at the plot denouement, that is.Rolling Eyes

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar Oh, we take everything in our stride. We even had an old-age pensioner wet the seat in his excitement once and have had two cases of mild heart attack.
We even tried a cat onstage in Lettice and Lovage but it wouldn't stay put so we had to resort to a stuffed one.

Fennie's Avatar Rufus, Rosie's hound, is (or was) a regularly wee'er-in-excitement. We are used to that sort of thing. Being country folk an' all.

KitKatCot's Avatar Our little (sadly deceased) Border Terrier used to be a wee'er-in-excitement. We used to say 'No...please don't make a fuss of him, otherwise he'll..........oops...too late'

Camilla's Avatar Sounds like a great night out at the Theatre, Fennie. Daisy would be hopeless though if she came, she can bark for England.!

Angel's Avatar Errr, Bruno's going back if he starts weeing with excitement! Having none of that, ta! Laughing

Would love to come and see one of the productions, Fennie. We must all organise something and get together.

Fennie's Avatar Yes, wouldn't that be great! We have a couple of shows in January. There's the 12 Night show on Thurs 5 January - but that's by an external company - it's an Edwardian Music Hall evening.

Tickets are £10. A one man Dickens show on Friday 13th (tickets free as it's a try out) and a Shakespeare show (comedy) on 27 January (also Friday) - Tickets £5.
