… I went to see Uncle Vanya in London and met Richard Armitage again at the stage door. It was my second Vanya night, I had also seen the play (and Richard at the stage door) the night before. I didn’t realize that today was that date but Jan over on Twitter did. Today she tweeted some images of that night, as she had been there that second night as well and we briefly met her then. In these images, which are new to me, I see myself standing there next to Jan, grinning like an idiot at Richard signing something for her.
In another picture the lovely Anna Calder-Marshall was signing autographs, I’m sort of in that picture too, but hidden beside Jan. Rachel and Michele are visible, though, the two ladies I had the pleasure of meeting that night.
It’s been a very dark day in world history today as Russia continues to fight in Ukraine, so it was great to be reminded of such a wonderful evening in lovely company and to see the evidence of that as well! Thank you, Jan, for cheering me up!
