Validation!

After a torrid time bombing the shit out of Germans, Teddy Graham relaxes with a well-deserved beer or ten...

As some readers will know, your humble Devil occasionally creeps the boards for the Barnes Charity Players. Around the south west London AmDram circuit, the big accolades are handed out in the yearly Arts Richmond Swan Awards—reviewers from which come and assess the shows of all of the multifarious theatre groups in the area.

Your humble Devil is thoroughly gratified (even if they did spell my name wrong) to have been nominated for Best Actor in a Play for February's Flare Path: I am also delighted that the show itself has been nominated for Best Production of a Play.

Of course, one would love to win, but I notice—somewhat ruefully—that I'm up against someone who played the Elephant Man...

Yeah, you strike me as a bit of a Withnail - no offence, like.

Heartiest congratulations! That'll cost you a few beers no doubt...?

Thanks: it's nice to be nominated—first time!

Michael—as it happens, I played Withnail in a theatre production of said film in March 1997...

I suspect that you could've winged it neither having seen the script nor film!

Do let your fans know when you next tread the boards and all that. Top show.
