The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Talk To The Flipper (Reprise)

It has been brought - via a somewhat circuitous route - to Lady Bracknell's attention that the cast and crew of "Thalidomide: A Musical" are poised to hit the road once more.

Regular readers will recall that the editor and her friends behaved rather badly at a performance of the show last November. So badly, in fact, that Lady Bracknell will be surprised if any one of the four is permitted to purchase a ticket from any of the venues on the current tour. In defence of herself and her partners in vandalism, the editor is keen to point out that the incident with the Ouch badge was the result of "youthful" high spirits engendered by enjoyment of the show: she also recommends that such persons who did not get the chance to attend a performance last autumn take the opportunity to see it in its new incarnation. (Although they may not wish to travel as far as Versailles to do so.)

It seems that Mr Fraser and his business cohorts have not been slow to recognise the fact that theatre audiences are often willing to pay for items which will remind them of the performance thay have just enjoyed. The range of merchandise available at venues will include the "Flid-ball Cap" pictured to the left.

No but really. Where could you possibly wear that baseball cap in public?

Lady Bracknell suspects that the theory is that one will be so caught up in the energy of the performance that one will fail to recognise that opportunities to actually wear the hat will few and far between.

I would strongly recommend the good Lady's readers to see this show.

It is not only touching and funny it has swearing in it. Which is not only big but clever to boot.

I would love to see this show especially as it has swearing in it, actually because it has swearing in it. Perhaps I could sneak in, inside one of Lady Bracknell's ginormous handbags?

Wilf is always welcome to accompany Lady Bracknell on one of her rare evenings out. But what would his parents say?

Dame Honoria cannot imagine that Wilf's parents would ever countenance such an enterprise.

Dame Honoria is quite sure that Wilf has encountered swearing before, given his career so far (the Santa's Grotto Incident springs to mind).
