Aphrodite Blues, New End Theatre,
10 March 2001
The plan was for five of us to go and see the matinee
performance of Aphrodite Blues starring Jacqueline Pearce. The day started
with a set back when Rob rang me to say he couldn't make it because he
was ill. He'd probably caught a chill wearing this costume
at Redemption two weeks earlier. I arrived at Hampstead just before they
closed the tube station because of an accident. Nevertheless, I was soon
joined in the Duke of Hamilton (the pub next door to the theatre that serves
a really nice pint) by Ika
and then by Nicola
Just in time for us to go to theatre,
arrived. The play was very funny and more than a little blue, which is
what we've come to expect from Jacqueline, and the funniest joke invloved
swallowing (I leave that to your imagination). Apart from Jacqueline, one
of the stars of the show was this little fellow .
After the play, we were met by Diane and her daughters and then we went
next door to the pub again joined by Jacqueline ,
what a star! She chatted with us, signed autographs and had her photo
taken a few times. Magic. Jacqueline then had to go back to get ready for
the evening performance so, via a bite to eat, Nicola, Paula and I headed
for Pages Bar, where Tavia
already waiting for us.
We were later joined by John and Rita .
All in all, a nice day and I hope Rob gets better soon.
