Me and my shadow

Jodie Comer and Paul Mescal have scooped honours at the Olivier Awards for their debuts as leads in major London productions.

Killing Eve star Comer recently took to the stage in the one-woman show Prima Facie, and Normal People actor Mescal earned plaudits for his part in A Streetcar Named Desire.

I saw Prima Facie last July (Icons passim), for all that it was the NT Live version in a cinema, tickets being like gold dust, and am booked for Streetcar on the 29th of this month.

Plaudits also to my brother John and niece Mia who tipped me the wink about Jodie Comer and also sorted (web booking, finger tapping queue of thousands and their hands in their pockets for the tickets) Paul Mescal.
