Je suis desole, je ne parle pas Francais

Hamburg - We get tickets to see Stomp which is playing the main house, providing we donate to a collection fund of a sick technician.  After two days of asking everyone in the building the only fund we find is the green room coffee fund.

Juvisy - Young child shows appreciation for the show by throwing his shoes at the actors mid performance.  It's definitely not hilarious.

Laval - The local tech approaches me grinning and says "Your actors are in the dressing room drinking cock"
by which obviously he meant coke, but I absolutely did not get that until after an array of facial expressions gave away something about the comment was vexatious.

Clamart - An usher has an epileptic fit mid way through the first show, her first ever apparently.  The audience do not notice. (She is ok now.)

Elancourt - Find out the French for 'Hen night' is 'Enterrement de vie de jeune fille' Meaning 'Funeral of being a young girl.'  Poetic.

Holiday - I resolve to actually post in this blog

Sarzeau - I fail dismally at the first hurdle

St Ave - A brilliantly boozy lunch is put on by the theatre every day.  I am far too British to get involved, and their response to this is to dig one tea bag and some powdered milk to try and make me feel at home.  Dudes.

Choisy le Roi  #1- There is a toilet in the middle of the stage upon our arrival

Choisy le Roi # 2 (we're here for a long time) - A child genuinely responds to a surprise part of the show by shouting out 'ooh lala!'
