There are other forms of entertainment around currently, so my husband and I set off for Heartbreak House at Chichester Festival Theatre. I had wanted to see Derek Jacobi in the role of Captain Shotover. He looked more like Captain Birdseye, but was absolutely convincing and seemed to have lost that dreadful stutter. Maybe he had had a w-w-word w-with Colin Firth and had been recommended a vocal therapist.
I couldn’t help almost nodding off, owing to my late night. The play was riveting and it definitely w-w-wasn’t Derek’s fault.
