Dr Faustus

Last night The Weatherfield Librarian, who sits at the other end of the office from me, was at the Royal Exchange Theatre attending a production of Dr Faustus (The Weatherfield Librarian being a rather erudite young man).

Here's a fine photo of the Royal Exchange, nicked from Photo Camel.

Good, isn't it?

Anyway, this post is not an architectural critique, or even a theatre review. It turns out that The Weatherfield Librarian was seated next to Dev Alahan! Here is his report:

1. Dev Alahan was dressed in a somewhat foppish manner, a la Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
2. Sunita was not there (presumably at home minding the twins).
3. Dev was eating Cadbury's Eclairs - and dropping the wrappers on the floor! What a dirty boy.

The Weatherfield Librarian now has in his possession one of these wrappers - and has promised to get me a photo of it to post on this blog. In the meantime, here is an artist's impression of how the floor of that lovely theatre might have looked after Mr Alahan had finished stuffing his face.

What a grub.
