Yesterday Mr Mike took me to the theatre to see Flare Path...and my, was I excited!
I set my hair in some Nicky Clarke heated rollers (which I havent done before), as I was too lazy/tired the night before to do my normal bendy roller set, but it actually turned out really well! The rollers were hella painful to wear, and to keep them from pulling out my hair with the weight, I donned my trusty pink hairnet and precariously fashioned some sort of supportive headscarf to keep them aloft. They gave much bigger curls than I'm normally accustomed to, but I feel I was actually having rather a good hair day in the end!
And this is my 'off to be cultured' outfit...
Green 1940's style home-sewn dress: charity shop, £8.
1930's beaded cardigan: gift.
Belt: charity shop.
First we stuffed our giant faces at an Indian restaurant....
As you can see, I was quite excited!
The play itself was wonderful. All set on a night in WWII in a Lincolnshire b&b, the play illustrates the lives, loves and worries of a group of people experiencing the war from the same plac,e but dealing with it in different ways. The play was full of drama and emotion, as we discover the links between the different characters we see before us in one room. And of course, I blubbed.....it was bound to happen. I think I have overly emotional tear ducts. Ha. I am in fact a big baby!
But really, it was an amazing play. And of course the characters had some glorious clothes! And who can resist a fine chap in a 1940's RAF uniform?
You really must see it if you get the chance!
