    WARNING – There will be a Bearded Git of 75 in the audience at your Ropetackle performance on 4 MARCH.. Sheila, Steve & I saw the original (?) troupe, inc Adam Long at the Connaught Theatre, Worthing back in the 1980’s. Adam (met him on the train home) had the good sense to veto a move by the other two to get the Bearded Git up on stage for some audience participation. If only Somebody had told JAMES CORDEN (One Man, Two Guvnors) that you do NOT accuse an uninhibited Bearded Git of performing “gay nookie” in your stage pub. In no time flat, he persuaded the other guy (Total stranger, by the way) to do the Big Air Kiss that footballers do when they score the Winning Goal. Poor JC: upstaged by one of his “stooges” because if there was fault or offence, it was Richard Bean’s for cleverly re-setting Goldoni in Brighton in the 1950’s (when gay anything was illegal). Welcome to SHORE ’em (Go easy on the HAM, there’s a good chap). I promise to behave, though NOTE that I deliberately didn’t say whether I would be “in”at 4pm or 7.30pm. How mean.
