Nell: I can’t believe Gladys has been given the role of Anita in West Side Story. I don’t know what possessed Rupert.

Me: Gladys does have lovely fluffy hair.

Nell: Gladys looks like my Russian winter hat.

Me: She does a bit.

Nell: I’m sure I saw one of the guardsman outside Buckingham Palace wearing her on his head.

Me: That’s mean.

Nell: It must be because she’s a friend of Rita Pawreno’s.

Me: Maybe.

Nell: Who is going to believe David is in love with her?

Me: Actually, Dave likes her a lot.

Nell: That’s because she and The Cat trained together at beauty school and he loves all that chitter chatter.

Me: She can dance.

Nell: Yes, but her singing voice leaves a lot to be desired.

Me: It is a little high.

Nell: Honestly, this production is getting out of hand. Ron Gilbert was on the phone just now.

Me: Was he?

Nell: Yes, barking away about lighting again. As if I care.

Me: Well, you agreed to be assistant director.

Nell: I don’t know how that happened. I must be mad.

Me: You will be wonderful.

Nell: Can you ask James to bring the car round, please? I’ve got a Bichon Frise and a Miniature Pinscher waiting to audition in Paignton and I can’t be late.

Me: Sharks, or Jets?

Nell: Small dogs, don’t be silly.

Me: Sorry.
