The Country Wife

Ooh , I'm running short of time, so I'll tide you over with this picture of Toby surrounded by gorgeous women, until I get a summary of the reviews up (which are gratifyingly positive).

It's not wrong for my eyes to get drawn inexorably to that bunch of grapes, is it?

Hi Penny,

I went to see "The Country Wife" last Saturday night, the opening moment is a little overwhelming for a Toby Stephens fan....

Friday night I saw "Present Laughter", I'll put a short review up soon on the AJ Diaries.

I know, apparently Mr. Stephens is, ahem, nude! Ooh er. And as I am a staunch Toby Stephens fan, it may well be far too much for me. I'm looking at my diary to see if I can get a day free to see "The Country Wife", but it's not looking too likely at the moment, alas! :(

What did you think of the play?

And I'm looking forward to hearing about "Present Laughter". How lucky you were to meet Alex, injured foot or not!

Kind regards,

Yes, I got to see all of Mr. Stephens, but it was very discreet at the same time. I love the play, it was the subject for my thesis... I liked Toby in it, I liked the pace and most of the design and the colours. I wasn't too sure about the way the Pinchwifes were played, but I liked Harcourt and Alithea. The grapes were good, the picture you have sort of indicates...

I must confess, as an Alex Jennings fan, I did prefer "Present Laughter", it was a little more subtle in every way. It was very funny, very well acted, and I liked the set. Never mind the reviews... I think you will enjoy it in November.
