I went to see Smaller last night at the Lyric Theatre, starring Dawn French, Alison Moyet and June Watson. This was an excellent play, even if it was a bit uneven at times. French and Moyet play two sisters with an infirm mother, French's character has looked after her for over 25 years while Moyet is a singer who is hardly home and has decided to live her life away from home. The three actresses are all great in their roles, especially French who is able to inject her great comedic timing to give relief from the difficult subject matter at hand. Moyet has a more difficult task of gaining the audience sympathy, but she manages to be redemptive in the final scenes of the play, and its a real treat to hear Moyet singing a few songs on stage with her wonderful bluesy voice.

I went to the play with Ben and James, it was James' last night in London and he is flying back to Toronto today. The poor boy had to cough his way through the entire show as his partying over the past week has finally caught up with him. I will miss having him around, but will look forward to having nights in and vegging out in front of the tv once again.
