It’s always worrying when a friend offers you comps to see them perform in a play. What do you say if they’re terrible? When I raised this on Twitter, Lorelei King replied:
@scottm Once someone came backstage to see me after a show and complimented me on how well my costume was ironed.

So whenever I get an invitation along these lines, I accept with not a little trepidation. Thankfully, when my friend asked me along to see her and her fellow students from Drama Studio London in their graduation show, Dear Brutus at the New Diorama Theatre, she was excellent. As, indeed, were the cast as a whole.
