The Play that Went Right

It’s been a while since I’ve updated on our whereabouts around London and it’s about time I did so!

We finally, after too many years, made it to the West End to see a play this weekend. I know, long overdue! We made an evening of it, going to Bill’s Restaurant for dinner first, which is right around the corner from the theatre.

The restaurant has a creative barn and garden style feel to it, with small white iron tables outside, and wooden inside. There are two floors, both of which could fit a large number of people. We managed to get there around 5:30 before the masses thankfully, but on such a nice evening, I could see it being packed by 7pm. We began with some Kale chips, which ended up being mine as Joe wasn’t a fan. At all. Rabbit food, right? This was followed by a salad and the BBQ evening special.
Conscious of the time, we finished and made our way to the theatre so we could get to our seats before everyone else arrived. The theatre was rather small and personal, with our seats being a couple of feet from the stage and the back of the room being only a few metres back. Whilst waiting, some of the cast members were on stage and made a few “announcements”, setting the scene for the play. The Play that Goes Wrong. A play about a play that goes seriously wrong. I haven’t laughed so hard in quite some time. The cast was well-chosen, with each person representing and looking their part much better than other plays I’ve seen in the past.

The play actually almost reminded me of a middle school play that’s going wrong and they’re trying to do everything possible to restore it. Not that I have any experience with that myself…

Anyway, I would highly recommend the play to anyone who’s in the mood for a good laugh. The theatre is very conveniently located in the West End by many restaurants and city life, making it a great day-in-the-city type of thing to do.

The evening ended with some ice cream before a train ride home to sit on the balcony and take in the city a bit. Have I mentioned recently how much I love London?
