I couldn't resist using this as a title for my first post about our trip to the Deep South , I've always loved this song:) We must start at the beginning though which is where the train comes in, as Eric Morecambe would have said 'I'm using all the right words but not necessarily in the right order' :):) And for those of you who don't know this fantastic song here it is. Turn up the volume and sing along!
My daughter and I travelled down to London by train on the Saturday before our Sunday morning flight. Juliette had suggested that instead of spending the evening sitting about in a hotel we might as well take in a West End show so we'd booked tickets to see 'Jeeves and Wooster in Perfect Nonsense' at the Duke of York's theatre. It was a brilliant choice! We both really enjoyed it and it was genuinely funny. There were only three actors in it - Stephen Mangan, Matthew Macfaddyen and Mark Hadfield. Since there are several important female characters in the Jeeves and Wooster stories we'd wondered how the play was going to be presented without any actresses in the cast. It soon became clear, Stephen Mangan played just Bertie Wooster the whole way through but the other two played all the other characters including the women between the two of them. Mark Hadfield was absolutely brilliant as Aunt Dahlia. It was a great start to our holiday.
