The entire cast had taken the night off to get drunk and come out to watch, cheer, and heckle their understudies?

OK, nobody cares (except Phil who's nice). I shan't try this again.

Answer: the play was based on their village.

(hence, local publican buys up 30 tickets, organises bus to London, fills bus up with booze, people get smashed; it being a small village, social capital is more inclusive across ages and class, but not race; key characters in the play are based on actual individuals in the village - real name has been changed - and they receive a cheer of recognition when they take the stage.)


That's fascinating - what did it do to your (retrospective) experience of the play?

I guessed they were just a bunch of politicians.
