There is drama in my life

Myself (lighting pipe): It is a common misconception that the first lesbian kiss on British television was between Anna Friel and Nicola Stephenson on Brookside in 1994. In fact an embrace from Myra Frances and Alison Steadman in the 1974 television play Girl, directed by Peter Gill, beat them by two decades. It was repeated on BBC4 last night but you can still catch it for another month at BBC iPlayer - Second City Firsts - Girl. (I forgot about it yesterday, so that is how I will see it as well.)

What else? We couldn't get tickets for Jodie Comer in Prima Facie at the Harold Pinter Theatre so we are off to the NT Live version at the Clapham Picturehouse tonight. Also, speaking of the Harold Pinter, The Seagull has been rebooked for the sixth of August. We missed it this month when it was cancelled due to Covid in the cast.
