Tamsin Greig in Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

To Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown: The Musical last night to see the wonderful Tamsin Greig. She was indeed excellent and it is an enjoyable evening.  The cast was uniformly very good - I suspect Tamsin is another one of these actresses who gets the best out of other people. Anna Skellern should also be singled out as her model girlfriend.

I haven't seen the movie on which it is based and the musical takes liberties with the plot of course. But it is enjoyable madcap humour - well calculated to take one's mind of the election and in fact we saw C's nephew who is intimately involved in it and his charming girlfriend and her parents.

We popped backstage briefly to meet and congratulate Tamsin whose work we have admired for years - and then quickly home given the clock change!
