Changing landscape

 I was lucky enough to go and see the very wonderful production of Virginia Woolf's A room of one's own at the Belvoir. I am very glad it was before the new rules came out, as for me, the spacing seemed enough for me to be comfortable. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the new rules. Will keep watching the numbers and see, I guess. I am very glad they make you wear a mask throughout though. I hope that rule stays in place for awhile.






One thing I've found interesting is seeing entertainment change into zoom format - because for a long time zoom was a big part of our life. Three highlights reflecting lockdown are:

Cancelled, the series. This is on the web and just a brilliant reflection of lockdown life when the world stopped quite unexpectedly.

Who's Your Baghdaddy, or How I started the Iraq War is now available world wide for streaming. It's a musical comedy that was staged specifically for zoom, so not like watching a play being filmed. Far more engaging and visually enjoyable. Make some time for this one, I loved it.

Wakaalat From Home is a series that was made by zoom in lockdown. I've only started watching it but so far, very funny.


2020 has changed our world view considerably, and it's interesting to see that reflected in entertainment.

What I am loving this week, however, is getting out and about and the hope that eventually it will all change back again....It felt SO good walking up the hill to the theatre for the first time since Feb!

What are you loving this week?

  4. I have not participated in any Zoom entertainment. You are so ahead of the game there! Very fancy new concept. I'll have to check out the links. Do you watch them on a big screen TV? Or do you watch on a device?

    1. Both! Some I watched on the ipad when Husband was watching footy on the tv and the Wakaamat at Home is on Prime so I watch that on the tv...
