I sometimes feel guilty about the workload I place on St Jude, patron saint of hopeless cases ...

Who procured the ticket,  even when I knew the show was completely sold out

And the rainy-night cab that deposited me outside the theatre with exactly 90 seconds to spare, which is just enough time to collect said ticket and beg for a glass of water to get my breath back.

It was a memorable performance. There's a trailer here.

Oh Lesley Manville, she is just wonderful.

She was absolutely brilliant, Sue. How she manages to play that part with such intensity, night after night, is beyond me.

Do you remember Lesley Manville as Villy in the series "The Cazalets"? She was great in that part. I also enjoyed her in "Cranford".

I don't think I ever saw The Cazalets, Nick. I wish they'd repeat it.
