26.Go see 5 theatre shows..COMPLETED
Last week I was out with the 'Knitting Gals'. The 9 of us went to the local Italian restaurant where we were served by an 'over-friendly' Irish waiter. Luckily, the food was good even though the service was cheesier than the parmesan on offer. With full belly I managed to waddle the short distance to the theatre in plenty of time for curtain up.
The show was a production of Tony Roper's 'The Steamie'. Set in a 1950's Glasgow wash house it tells of the raw hard graft of the women who toil there and the strong friendships forged. Tales of hardship and hope with a few musicals numbers thrown in this play is wonderfully written and was greatly acted. Funny, and bittersweet..a real heartwarmer.
It got the thumbs up from my knitty companions.
