What The Dickens..

Gail and I went to the Lace Market Theatre tonight to see a friend of mine undertake a dramatic reading of A Christmas Carol. A one off performance, so not to be missed. He was very good too. Doing different voices for all the characters. He was also suffering with the lurgie that is going round, so his own voice was huskier than normal.

Around 40 people had come to see Phil interpret the famous story by Charles Dickens, which he had just performed in Germany earlier in the week. For an amateur he did very well, with lots of movement to keep you watching and your interest. His daytime job is working on the butchery counter in a local supermarket. And I am very glad to say that there was no ham tonight!

Besides treading the boards, Phil is also a photographer and blogger like me. If you're interested in learning more about the man himself and his love of all things French and food related, then here's a link to his blog.
