I'll send you my coursework pictures if you don't believe me. I am a lady of true virtue, Mrs C can back me up on this one, plus I had a fella at the time.

So Laura must have taken the part of 'Michelle' , then.

Love to know who took Vicki Hodge's part !

I believe it was a girl called Alice Doyne-Ditmus, a current grecian. At least she played Mimi very well. Although hats always will go off to Tashs wonderful portrayal of Helga. We will never forget the strip tease. That might have killed some of the elderly audience members!!

I seem to remember quite a bit of ad-libbing too...!

Great entertainment!

I have the video of it at home. Well hidden so my mother doesn't feel the need to bring it out when my friends come round.
Yes the ad-libbing was quite good, shame we got told to not do the toothpaste gag on the second night, we did anyway but still. I do remember feeling rather proud when I was told the headmaster walked out halfway (later discovered this was not due to disgust as first thought, but a far more boring reason)!!

Hey JR what do you know about little blue pills?

Did you eat some that you confiscated?

I had a girlfriend who took them and told me they were slimming tablets

She was extremely thin

I was naive

I believed her

I was, after all fresh out of CH

Later I learned all sorts of things about them

But never took them myself
