  • theatre and Concerrts

    November 30. Susan, Christine and I saw two of three new Italian plays at the Cherry Lane theatre. I actually thought I had booked the third offer which was a Pirandello revival but we were all glad that we did not miss “The Journey I Never made” and “Story of Love and Soccer”. Both excellently translated and powerfully acted. The first is a thought provoking and somewhat unsettling portrayal of the current social turmoil and the second is modern thriller about corrupt sport and the triumph of evil over good. We were able to chat with one of the actors about the plays after the show. Before the show we ate lobster and oysters at theĀ  “Fish” restaurant which was only two blocks from the theatre!

  1. Dilys.The reproduction of your painting comes across reasonably well, I think,in spite of the fact that, as you say, the photo is not as bright as the original. I like it,and putting the vase on that litte Chinese stand is a nice touch.

  2. Dilys,
    The painting is lovely. I like it very much. Glad to see that you are painting. I agree with Ben, show us more of your work.
    Seems as if it has been so long since I have heard from you – I miss our chats.

  3. Thanks for that Susan, I did the painting 10yrs ago!!
    When you get time could you send me your e-mail address. Thanks, love Dilys
