    Truth in Beauty was insightful. I never knew Alice Walker had done so much work.

    I can no longer attend tonight due to an unexpected event, so there's a spare ticket available -seat F7. It's at the concessionary price of £8.50 but I have been told the person who uses it does not have to be a concession. I'll take £7 so I don't lose all my cash!
    To use it please let me know your name/ the name of whoever's using it so I can given it to the box office where a duplicate can be collected. Payment by paypal can be made to me afterwards -send me a message for the email address. I'll check here again at 7pm to see if there's a taker. Enjoy!
