Yes, we had two precious tickets for Harold Pinter in Beckett's Krapp's Last Tapes for Friday 13th and, like John, we were herded out to Sloane Square to be told that the performance was cancelled and, as the show was sold out we would not be able to get tickets for another performance. Felt truly gutted with disappointment.

I suppose we have to believe the Royal Court's line about "lighting problems in the auditorium"? There didn't seem to be any lighting problems in the foyer or the stairs or the bar....

I suppose the whole experience had more than a touch of Beckett and Pinter about it. Waiting for Pinter's Last Krapp....

No disrespect to Terry Johnosn, Kelly Reilly et al. But just imagine if you had tickets for Pinter in Krapp's Last Tapes that night. One of the hottest tickets of the year. Of the decade. Aaargh!
