Stephen Fry - Bert Fry's brother/cousin.
Ah-ha! I see here the start of another truly Umratic game - Unlikely
My contribution - Walter Gabriel and his son Peter.
Late arrivals at The Ambridge Players Ball, eh?
Joe Grundy and his judicious brother Solomon.
P.C. Harrison Burns and his investigative officer brother Thirdegree.
Jolene Rogers and her rather cowboy builder brother Roy.
Brian Aldridge and his expectorant love-child son Rourriaadahahede.
Kirsty Miller and her brother who has just returned from a funeral for a
salesman friend, Arthur.
Kirsty's grandfather is of course famous too, and another titled
connection to Ambridge, Sir Jonathan Miller, CBE, theatre and opera
director, actor, author, television presenter, humourist, and medical
doctor. No wonder Kirsty was so good in the Canterbury Tales. She
probably got extra help and coaching from him.
Have we been discussing The Canterbury Tales anywhere else? If so, I
must have missed it.
I just want to say that I thought it was terrific, with just the right
amount of layering - eg Trevor Harrison playing the Jailer as Eddie
Grundy - or should that be playing Eddie playing the Jailer - well, you
know what I mean.
AFAIR, this was the first production - with the exception of Calender
Girls which I presume, because of all the hoo-ha beforehand was plain,
straight Samuel French - that was written by a proper radio playwright
and not just hacked together by Sean O'Connor. I am a big fan of Nick
Warburton to the extent that I will listen to anything flagged with his
name and I'm rarely disappointed. And I wasn't disappointed yesterday
afternoon, either. I'm really looking forward to next Saturday.
Apols if I've just repeated something somebody else might have said in
