We went to see a play Wednesday night. The play that I wanted to see was sold out. So we went to see Faith Healer by Brian Friel – again. We saw it about six weeks ago at the Guthrie with Joe Dowling as Frank – the Faith Healer. It was interesting to see the difference in the show and in the reaction of an American versus Irish audience.

There is one character named Teddy, the cockney agent (of sorts) for the faith healer. It was interesting to see how alike the portrayals of the character were. He is in many respects the comic relief is a very dark show. Fun to see how much of the comedy must have been written into the script (which I would have read years ago but of course forgot those kinds of details).

On Thursday I went to book club at Hughes and Hughes. It was fun but here’s a glimpse of our life here you don’t always see, I had to wait 20 minutes for the bus in the pouring rain and cold wind. I had an umbrella – a real sign of how bad it was – but even with the umbrella my legs got soaking wet.
