Did I read the censored version of the play? Because I do NOT remember Hamlet using the word cunt. LOL!

The play was actually quite rude in places, the old people sitting on one side of me were tutting and the girl on the other side of me gasped when David used the naughty word (ok, I gasped too)

I'm not even sure meeting Michael on Saturday can make me as gleeful as today has. Ok, maybe that's a lie. LOL! It's been brilliant though.

I did all five Shakespeare houses and gardens, went around this silly little tour that was like a cheap version of The York Dungeon (but was still fun) and went on a river cruise.

I have to give kudos to the guide at Anne Hathaway's cottage who managed to keep us in the first room of the house for about half an hour while she told us stuff. At least some of it wasn't true (like Ring a Ring o' Roses being about the plague) but I didn't have the heart to correct her, and some of it was really interesting.

I managed to find time to kip for an hour before I headed out to the theatre. Wow, I had no idea how close to the stage my seat was! I was six rows back from the front and at times I could have touched some of the actors if I'd wanted to.

David and Patrick were wonderful, as expected, but the guy who played Polonius was brilliant! I always imagined Polonius to be quite a dry character but this man made him funny. It worked perfectly!

Ophelia I did not care for but I can't decide if it's just because I don't like the character or because it wasn't a very good actress.

Did the fangirl thing afterwards and loitered at the stage door. It was easy to find, I just followed the other fangirls. LOL! After about five minutes an usher came out and told us that Patrick and David had already left. I was too cold to wait just in case he was fibbing. Hehe!

I has lots of photos of my day in Stratford which I will post tomorrow. I think I need some sleep first.
