Anecdote to Play

It was the late 1990’s, I had just started acting in a reasonably unsuccessful run of Ionesco’s ‘The Hairless Diva’. This was very frustrating for me as I loved the play, and Ionesco, and I wanted it to be brilliant. It wasn’t. We were drowning our sorrows in the theatre bar, post show, one night and I remember the director talking to someone about Ionesco being a huge fan of Tommy Cooper. The rest of the run and the anecdote are lost to me in a blurry mess. In fact the Cooper-Ionesco thing is all my brain will allow me to remember of that whole affair. But as you have read that is all Annie needed... thankfully... And thank you Annie, at last something memorable has come out of that bloody production.
