The first two seasons of 8 Simple Rules is now on TV. The very show which encapsulates my childhood from about the age of eight! And now, i can sit here and make my way through yet another series which i most probably, have not time for.

If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative." Woody Allen

We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers - but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change. Katharine Hepburn

They can never take it away. It’s always there, as long as you choose to keep it there. The passion remains the same, even if you don’t express in a way in which you used to. They don’t understand, and they don’t have too. You have no one to answer to but yourself. Are you happy? Because if you are, then your happiness is the best thing in the world. Don’t loose what burns inside of you, because even if, for a second, you loose it, your heart sinks, to the very bottom, and it hurts. And that’s not happiness. The burning desires burn brighter than even before, and even if they can’s see them, or don’t approve, then so what?

Cocktails in London, Mexican Grasshopper

We’re sitting here beyond 2am and we’re watching the most spectacular lightning storm! The sky is literally going from day-to-night in a matter of seconds and the faint sound of thunder is rolling in.

SKYLIGHT

Tonight marked my first NT Live performance of this year. The evening’s performance was David Hare’s Skylight, featuring Carey Mulligan, Bill Nighy and Matthew Beard, a truly spectacular cast for a summery London evening.

When one sets down in their seat with an ever delectable Starbucks, sitting, knowingly awaiting a performance of both Bill Nighy and Carey Mulligan, it is inevitably a hard performance to anticipate; but on commencing, despite a striking cast and emblematic story, it was the production design which is, foremost, the first striking element in need of mentioning. One single set, with the depth created by great imagination. Simple, yet certainly clever in use and in physicality.

Skylight is a great play that touches lightly but thought-provokingly on money, class, politics and love”- Sunday Times

The first character, considering the entire play consists of only three, captures the heart of the audience with foolishly witty humour, and true soul. Mulligan and Nighy also quickly find a place in our hearts, for reasons which change as the characters develop and reveal so much more than a love story, and we also fancy a Mulligan-cooked-spaghetti within the first half!

After the interval, a rare treat entails, Emma Freud interviews David Hare. He describes his 1995 play in 2014. A seemingly prevalent play for today, considering a gap of eighteen years.

What then commences, is the darkest side of this previously serious- light-hearted-serious play. Yet, it never looses spark or heart nor hilarity.

“The evening, the couple of hours you’ll spend with us, hopefully you will be moved by large human themes and you will be entertained and you will be made to laugh. And then you will be very hungry…”- Telegraph
