Please come and see "Oh! What a Lovely War" if you're in Woking this week. It has some excellent people in (including, just in case they are Googling themselves again, Alan Arlington, Helen Imison and Tony Richardson!!) and we've all worked really hard.

Last night was the tech...not a lot to say other than we didn't get through it all. Sigh. Tonight is the dress rehearsal, so much less stressful for me - all I have to do it cue people, I don't have to organise them! (well a little)

I've really enjoyed stage managing, though it's taken some time for people to listen to me as though I know what I'm talking about and I'm not just a stupid kid. Some people still talk to me like that, but hey, what can you do.

Anyway, the Rhoda McGaw Theatre, Woking, 11-14th June 2007, 7.45pm. Tickets available on the door, £10 or £8 concessions.

The War to End All Wars

"If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is forever England."
(from 'The Soldier', Rupert Brooke)

"Oh! What a Lovely War" by Joan Littlewood tells the story of World War I using songs and newspaper clippings from the era.

Tickets are priced at £10 (£8 concessions) and are available from the Box Office 01932 844242.
