It was brill, and I cannot believe we got Diana Rigg's autograph. :shock: And lived to tell the tale! The play was great, it nearly had me crying at one point.

Get booked Chez, it's worth it! :D

Yeah, was a brilliant play.Mark stole it of course, though Dame Diana was good, as were all the cast.

Plus was great to meet Mark again and his four legged friend.Plus Miss Rigg was lovely and not intimidating at all! :D

Can't believe you met Bunsen!
Can't believe I'm that excited by you meeting a dog.

Didn't some of you meet him before at another Mark play/event?

Yeah, Bunsen was cute. Even if he did jump on and slobber all over Shaz, hehe.

Paw prints, now why didn't we think of that at the time?! :lol:

Diana Rigg was SUPER lovely and said we were a great audience, which made me beam. Bunsen was lovely too!

Also, must say thanks to Paul for telling me where to get the laser screwdriver. The conversation in the pub before hand was hillarious!

*forum hugs*

Did you enjoy yourselves after Mike and I had left?

The play was excellent! I loved it. Great performances and I agree Mark stole the show.

Bunsen was soooo adorable. Really lovely and friendly. Yes I got covered in dog slobber but I'm a sucker for dogs and can't resist saying hello :D

I absolutely LOVED Mark's wig. There was something so *real* about the terrible faded red colour and the grown-out roots.

It looks a bit like my hair at the moment. I must dye my roots... ;)

Really enjoyed the play. I've wanted to see the film for ages, so I definitely must get around to that now! It was very emotional. I nearly cried a number of times too, Hazel! And Mark was ace!!

Thanks for reminding me :roll: :lol:

If we are taking "rock" to be synonymous with "are a mentalist who should keep mouth shut" we might be somewhere near. :oops: I'm tempted to go back and do it again, see if she remembers. :lol:

I concur with the wig, it was horribly realistic. As were a lot of the clothes. Although why he was using a welsh accent when he was meant to be spanish is anyone's guess.

*high fives Sarah* I'm not the only soft-touch then, yay! :P

He mentioned about the Welsh accent on Paul O Grady.
Although I can't now remember what he said. Something about being an outsider...
plus, he probably can't do Spanish.

That might be the reason, yes. It was a good accent, but it reminded a little too much of the Mortician for me to take it too seriously...

:lol:
