shoot the crow

Went to see Shoot the Crow last night at the Trafalgar Studios in Whitehall. Very enjoyable play. Four Irish tilers are working on a job. Out front is a pallet of tiles not accounted for on the delivery sheet. They have plans to steal it, and each has his own hopes for the money that they’ll get. A lot of it’s played for laughs, but with some quite poignant moments. Jim Norton (Bishop Len Brennan from Father Ted) puts in an excellent performance. Man, I wish I could talk like him. Him, Orson Welles or James Earl Jones.
