Ethics? Aren't they what you get on horses?

And as to your 'virgin and pure reputation', that might be the reputation you have down there, up here your reputation is somewhat different. What was it they called you? Ah yes: well oiled egg*

Where's Ham & Egg's Supersoaker when you need it. [Roll Eyes] Never mind, with a bowling action worthy of most Australian school boy cricketers The Understudy lobs said empty bottle of gin at delightful singing cat [Razz] All is quiet. (And unless the "delightful singing cat" wishes to volunteer for either a) position of chief understudy neck warmer during this cold weather or b) an innocient for Herod to slaughter she'd better stick with "cute but mute" [Big Grin] )

Well it kind of worked [Big Grin] Just remember, you could always be replaced [Razz]

I get a fee!!!!!!!!!!!! [Eek!]

Understudy calls the Nice Man from the Insurance company - quoting policy numbers and the bit about "replacing like for like ..." - and is assured that the lights should arrive tomorrow and in the meantime, I'm sure that someone can rig up some spares.

Regarding point #1. Thank you, I have. Quite delightful news, actually.

Regarding point #2. I duly note this. Hoping Understudy's on-call hours will be more optimally aligned to onstage action than my two stage assistants and my first-aid person. Do I let them bleed til First-Aider arrives?

Respectfully, Chief Stage Manager.

Baa. Baa.

I hate to mention this, but in addition to variations on "baa", this sheep has also been seen to go "plop, plop".

However, despite numerous antics and the passage of several scenes, it has not yet been seen to go "psssssssssssssssssss".

Speaking from experience of other unruly sheep on the tour bus...

You have been warned

Ok this is a formal protest on behalf of myself and A very naughty boy.

We have been working our backsides off trying to keep that play afloat tonight.

Just because most of the cast are drinking the night away somewhere in Manchester doesn't mean that those of us who happen to take pride in our thespian careers should carry the bozzy beggars.

We will be making representation to our unions - NUFF* and PMIP** - in the hope of a better rate of pay for weekend work, and a larger profile in the billing.

I think we were amazing. What talent, what improvisation, what a Skoda!

And all that without any musical accompaniment.

There's no need to go on strike. I understand we are to receive the Musical Director's wages for tonight to share between us. He's paid extortionately well and tonight just proved how well we can manage without him. I know he would want us to have it.

Yes, I'm glad I don't have a hangover as well. But I am ill *sympathetic awwwwww's* and very tired and only half way round my room (stripping wallpaper that is).

Now then, I would like to report to the Tealady and the Medic. I need some medicine or the Play may be without a Musical Director.

*da da daaaaaa*

[Sheep 3 awakes, notices her fleece feels odd, and gives herself a good shake, only to immediately stop in alarm at a sudden tinkling noise]

Baaaaa?

[Tries shaking again, and again stops to listen for the tinkling noise]

Baaaaaaaaaaaa.

[She slowly wanders off, moving in starts and stops, trying to understand this noise which is following her around]

Baa.

Call that a review?

Pah!

That critic wouldn't know a future OBE receiver if he came up and recited the complete works of Shakespeare at him.

Right-o I am back from a break with soon to be Mrs Lowliest Shepherd [Smile] in Baltimore, so no PCs for the past 5-days.

However I have been practicing my lines for the shepherds glorious entrance and our dramatical stage appearance.
