Wonderful
10 January 2003 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I wish I hadn't missed the beginning when it was screened on UK TV recently.

A great play, and very lifellike if you've ever spent much time in a drinking club in Soho! Francesca Annis and Bill Nighy are as brilliant as ever. Love the old bag who keeps asking "Is anyone going Earlsy Courtsy way?" (Translation - Can anyone give me a lift to Earls Court?) xxxxx
