The Lord of Flies
was pretty good on Thursday. The actors from the Pilot Theatre
did an excellent job portraying the dark side of this famous tale, although paying $65 for what was, no offence lads, amateur dramatics was a bit steep. Poor asthmatic Piggy played by Dominic Doughty
and the increasingly deranged Jack splendidly performed by Mark Knightley
were stand out performances.
Saturday night's Serious Stand-Up
was excellent and the best live show I have seen for quite some while. We had dinner first with fellow Addicks and it was nice to see us each have rare smiles on our faces when departed at the end.
Bermudian Jonathan Young was the first act and compere and he was good, conquering some taboo Bermuda subjects with complete abandonment and wit. The main course was fantastic though. I could have sat listening to John Oliver
rage on about all and sundry for hours, the man best known for The Daily Show
was bloody funny. On topic, off topic, dealing with the odd drunken heckler, or just the shear irrelevance of his stories was brilliant. From Liverpool, lives in New York, go and see him wherever you can.
