Which theatre will Diana be performing in? I've never seen her in a play, so this time I really must make the effort to go.

Anyone else going to see Dame Diana? I have tickets for the matinee and evening performances on April 18th if you want to avoid me Confused
I would have gone the day before but I have tickets for Dame Judi on the Friday and then on Sunday my friend Jane who is also a Dame and a Baroness has a birthday - quite a Dame weekend!

Uhm Helen? Have you looked in the mirror lately? I'm just a few years younger than you are and look twenty years older!

Perhaps not any more. This new job in a basement with a clock to punch and timed bathroom breaks and lunch breaks is so horrible... Why did I take it? Oh yeah, I need the money...

Well, due to illness I am not in the 2nd row of the Chichester Festival Theatre right now - but here's a lovely montage of shots from the play:

Well, I finally made it! My, oh my!
Just got back from Chichester and I had a wonderful time!
The play and performances were marvellous - laugh out loud funny!
The whole audience loved it too!
Absolutely nothing to criticise. From me it gets 4/5 stars - if we are star-rating!
This certainly deserves a West End transfer as it's so much fun in gloomy times - in a way it kind of reminded me of the 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?' in the way that you would *never* want to visit their house! The Bliss' and Martha & George would destroy one!!!!
Dame Diana looked absolutely radiant - nowhere near 70 years of age and her comic-timing (Kate Bassett whoever you are!!!) was spot-on!
