I know where the fire station pub is, but I've never been in there. It's very near the Vic, anyway. But I actually don't think I've been in any pubs near Waterloo other than a couple on The Cut. Which were very busy. I'm happy to meet wherever's easiest for everyone.

Let's do the text thing? Sarah, Shaz, Mike and I will be in London from midday ish and you can always text us to say where you are? And we'll meander down to Waterloo around 5:30, watch the sunset and wotnot.
And I'll stay here till the trail's cold and return again with my meaty gold

Thrust bowling??? Do tell!

Mike and I will have to go home directly from the Theatre unfortunately, as Mike has a training course the next day. However, hopefully we'll be able to stay long enough to Stage-Door-Jenny.

Ha ha ha... As if he'd notice! But I'm sure he'll be happy with you lot, if he is delayed a couple of hours by one of those after-show parties that plague the life of us Jennies!

True, true. But you must stay, you simply must! how much leeway do you have afterwards?

Depends what time the show ends and how long it takes to get back to Kings Cross really. I don't want to leave out of Kings cross much after midnight as it takes at least two and a half hours to get home, and the last hour is a drive through Royston Vasey-style countryside. Or should that be Countrycide?

From what I remember when I saw a preview of the play at the end of August it finishes a bit after 10.00pm...

The play didn't start dead on 7.30pm, it was a few minutes late...so guess it depends on delays on start & interval time.

I'm crossing my fingers for you that you'll have enough time at the stage door afterwards & Mark isn't ages taking off all his Agrado make up :wink:
Have we missed the cakes?

I think perhaps it should be countrycide. One never knows what is going on...

It's not a special date, I can't think why they'd want to have an aftershow party for no reason. Unless they're reading the thread and wish to annoy us. *looks around suspiciously* you should have plenty of time to play with. :D

It was great! Got to meet Bunsen too, who is a lovely looking dog in real life. The whole cast were excellent and both the lady who plays Nina and also Diana Rigg said we were a wonderful audience.

Really enjoyed it, very faithful to the fillum.
