Goonies Steal Ladder!

Goonies Steal Ladder!

Our ladder went goonies style past the window of The Pit Bar on Saturday night. What followed was a classic knees up chase down Courtenay place ending with an 'allo allo allo, what 'ave we 'ere then?' Big ups to Kieran (you know who you are) who rescued Anneliese's priceless tool from the would be thieves and saved the day.

We have a double shot of theatre caffeine this week - here's the review buzz:

Burnt Coffee: '(David) Lawrence and all three actors navigate the multiple dimensions with wit and skill ....'- Theatreview []
