Only RSVP if you are genuinely interested in attending. No shows and late drop outs will be recorded.
A suggestion from Simon, let's watch the final Shakespeare's Globe for this season! It's long (3 hours - definitely need a choc top!), but will certainly be worth it (we enjoyed The Twelfth Night). Please note that ticket prices are more expensive that usual (adult tickets are $27).
Date: Sunday 21 June 2013
Time: Meet at 12.45pm for the 1.00pm session. Look out for my Meet Up badge on a table opposite the ticket booth.
A note to our new members: We buy our tickets individually at the desk (or online if you wish). We're in Cinema 6 (one of the smaller screens) and there is no reserve seating. We may not be able to all sit together and usually end up in clusters. Since we're in a smaller cinema and there will be only 2 screenings of this production, I recommend buying your ticket early (or before brunch for those who are catching up prior to the film).
Pre Film Catch up: Given the timing and length of this screening, let's get together for brunch instead of our usual post film catch up. I'll book a table for us for 11.30am at Cafe Excello (99 Spring Street) . They don't have a website, but they have vegetarian and gluten free options. It is very reasonably priced and serve all day breakfast.
Please bring CASH because they don't accept cards, but they let us split bills.
If you don't answer the lunch question when you RSVP, I'll assume you won't be joining us. "Maybe" will also be considered a no.
Could you please update your rsvp if you don’t intend to come to lunch as it is unfair to the restaurant if less people turn up than expected. Last minute drop outs on Saturday night and Sunday morning, and not showing up is not very nice, so please be considerate (I keep a list of offenders!).
You are most welcome to join us for the film only, but please let me know so I can adjust our restaurant booking.

Synopsis: "Shakespeare’s most outrageous comedy, The Taming of the Shrew introduces one of theatre’s great screwball double-acts, a couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the play’s equivocal and controversial conclusion."
