I’ve spent all day in the company of a delightful couple. Well one of them is at anyrate. I have read about half a dozen scripts today from the mid 19th C to the present day and, oh boy, how times do change. I had heard that things were darker back in the day but some of the earlier Punch and Judy plays, even until surprisingly recently were absolute bloodbaths with a body count almost worthy of Shakespeare. However at least one half of the pair was more charming in comparison.
At least up to a point!
And someone wanted a word!
And I have since learned this is a man you do not mess with! Help.
