Beat the Devil and Lose the Plot

Yesterday, went to see a play of the above title on show at The Victoria pub next to Alexandra Theatre. A friend of mine wrote it and directed.

It was about James Dean who survived the car crash and lived a life as a different person. Although I thought the story line had some hiccups, there are memorable lines and the actors, especially the main man, were very good. Well worth the £5 (£3 concession) admission.

There were about 20 spectators, which means that the small pub theatre was almost full. Great! As the friend said there were only a handful of people at the first shows, it seems to be gaining more audience.

The show starts at 8 at The Victoria pub until this Thursday (maybe extended until Friday). The ticket is sold at the first floor.
