christmas carol

With the new school term starting today, it seemed a little strange to spend last night at the theatre instead of getting books ready or ironing clothes. A group of us went along to the Tobacco Factory to see “A Christmas Carol” and the added bonus for Moira+me was that Felix (Hannah’s husband) was in the cast. It proved to be an excellent evening and we agreed with the Guardian’s theatre critic when she said that “Felix Hayes turns in the best performance of the night as the Ghost of Christmas Now: a hilarious, blaxploitation-tinged interpretation, looking like Brian Blessed in a floor-length fur coat and sounding like Barry White”.
We thought he was wonderful (obviously)!
