Many happy returns, Mr Charles Edwards (born 1st October, 1969)
Anna Chancellor in Private Lives
Thomas spins up from his seat and grabs an overflowing battered kettle as samba music kicks in. He puts on the voice of the sultry Mrs. Cleary.
Mrs Cleary: Ahh, Thomas, but you’re looking fabulous! What a rig-out! It’s top, it really is!! Oh look at ya! Jesus, ya’ve grown up to be a fine-looking fella! Best catch in Inishfree, I’d say!
- ding-dong, ding-dong
Eamon: Will ya have a cup of tea with me? I’ve got the kettle on in the garage.
Thomas: Well, that’s awfully Christian of you. Eamon!! Just…wait a sec!
[Thomas turns off the cemetery reel-to-reel, grabs a chair and quickly sets up Eamon’s garage space.]
People who were unable to see Coriolanus as performed at the Donmar Warehouse can watch it here. Enjoy this masterful piece of Shakespeare, performed by some truly amazing actors, including Tom Hiddleston, Mark Gatiss, and Deborah Findlay.
