Two Plays To See In London

If you're passing by London I suggest you see the following plays.

The rather terrific Attempts On Her Life at the Diorama produced and directed by Biba Lille West. Written by Martin Crimp, the play is about, erm, "17 ATTEMPTS ON A STATE OF MIND - KEEPING CONTROL AND BREAKING DOWN, SEARCHING FOR MEANING AND LOSING THE PLOT, CONSUMING PASSION AND SPITTING HATRED, MESSIANIC VISIONS AND DEMONIC VOICES, LYING UNCONSCIOUS AND ANONYMOUS ON THE ROAD - AS YOU TAKE THE TRIP OF YOUR DREAMS ACROSS THE WORLD."

www.attemptsonherlife.com 'til 7th November.

also I received this from Toby Young today. As you do. All I did was say I enjoyed the book (and congratulate him about his film deal) and I get on his buddy email list....

"Sorry for the spam, but I wanted to let you know that the stage adaptation of my book [How To Loose Friends and Alienate Them] makes its West End debut on Monday--and in an act of sheer lunacy I'll be playing myself. I'll be appearing at 9pm at the Arts Theatre on Great Newport Street, Monday-Saturday, with a matinee at 5pm on Saturdays, until December 4th.

..... you can buy tickets online by clicking on http://www.artstheatre.com/.

Let me know if you're planning to see it and I'll buy you a drink in the bar afterwards. I'll be the guy in the corner crying my eyes out."


Good luck Biba. Good luck Toby.

Saw the Toby Young play last night, Toby played himself!! So how did the Jurno turned Author turned Actor make out. Well.........Pretty Good.

The play is an abridged version of his book taking all of the best pieces and squeezing them into 1 hour. My only complaint - perhaps he could have put an epilogue onto the end. We've read the book, bought into who Toby is/was, it would have been good to catch up with him POST "how to lose friends"
