at the Royal Court Downstairs for three nights performed after the final three shows of Motortown.

A few chairs on the stage and these wonderful people recite cleverly choreoraphed anecdotes about the theatre. I wish I could remember some of the really wonderful things I heard tonight. It was electric. Not a sell-out, sadly. If I'd seen Motortown that night I would have stayed. This is the night I spoke to Daniel Mays and he told me that Matthew had been in the house earlier.
