I really don’t like #QuentinBlake’s illustrations for #RoaldDahl’s books compared to the older, more detailed versions. Blake’s drawing is energetic and lively, but lacks depth, doesn’t convey meaning or add to the story. These fabulous drawings by #FaithJaques deserve to stay in print. This is my old childhood copy bought on 21 February 1984. #CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory

Tuesday night #londontheatreclub for #charlieandthechocolatefactory @theatreroyaldrurylane. Sound was hopeless until last number, could not hear the words, 5/10 so far but expecting things to improve. Pace of production very off-kilter, Sam Mendes having a shocker. Still, amusing.
