That's a lie, it wasn't me honest, was my evil twin I swear

See I said he had visited here before - last time he said that 'Every one's talking and seems really well' so beware . . . Simon could be watching :P

Ok, loads of people have been asking so I'll post what happened...

Met up with 4 friends - Tom, Jo, Erin and Jade.

Watched the play - in which there was a good minute where no one could complete their lines for laughing too much - yes Simon too. :P

The part where everything goes flying Michael threw a cushion over towards the door brushing past Simon's head and knocking over the lamp - paper flying in the air followed by Michael falling on the floor. They just lost it. Simon - normally excellent at holding his composure - was just gone - laughing so much!

Bless him. I was sat next to this lovely couple who kept giggling at all the mistakes. :P

Oh - and the bit where Michael undresses his button got stuck and he went "Christ" and just ripped his shirt off making Simon laugh and improvise something like "That's it, good boy." :lol: Legend.

Then The gun shot didn't go off in the right place and Michael ended up dead behind the sofa. :lol: hilarious!

Then we went to see him afterwards - Michael came out first and this bloke called him over and said "I've never seen Sleuth and I don't know who you are but will you sign this for me please?" and handed him an autograph book!! :lmao: We laughed so much/ Then Michael almost left so I asked for a photo and he signed Tom and Erin's programmes and we had a group photo - just before the photo Simon came out and was also called over by this bloke who said, this time, "I don't know who you are, I've never really watched Casualty but will you sign this please?" to which we laughed at again. Bless the guy - he could have done some research :rolleyes:

Simon finished and whilst Michael was signing Tom's programme he gave me and hug and a kiss and asked if I'd enjoyed the show. :)
Then I said I had a pic for him to sign and he rolled his eyes. :P Saz knows why :lol: He didn't mind though, he was lovely and signed Tom and Erin's programmes asking about the performance and then we had a couple of group photos. Then he asked about where we lived and if we'd travelled far and then he remembered me saying where I lived :lol: We started talking about college and what we do and what we were doing at University.
Then Jade [who I don't actually know lol] said he was doing brainy subjects and he commented on them being brainy and having a big brain under her huge hair and she replied with "It's normally bigger.... it's greasy" :rolleyes: lol and Simon replied with "Well, I'm glad you washed to come to the theatre" and laughed. Jeeeez, embarrassed much?!?!!? lol and then Tom said I was obsessed when I promised not to go again. :P

He just laughed thankfully and then I had to explain going to get huge posters. I said I was getting one for me and one for Shelli. He nodded and then asked about when I was getting them and that if I wanted them signing he'd wait for me. ^_^ So I didn't feel too bad.

I wished him good luck with the rest of the tour, he winked at me and then we went home.

I hope Simon doesn't judge me from my friends, they're crazy. :lol:

But yes fabulous. It's sad to have seen it for the last time, but it was fantastic as usual and I had to stop myself overly laughing at the "Milo, Baby" line.

Saz - I so am a geek, and so are you!
Jax - Simon and Michael are a fantastic double act!

Campness rules all!

I/we should be getting some signed ones (both Simon and Michael) in a week or two which I planning on auctioning a couple of them off for charity at some point in the near future. With the rest also being kept for a future charity auction (as soon as Simon pick's us a charity!)

I've got 7[ish] A3 Sleuth posters signed by both Simon and Michael for said auction and they wished us luck. :)


Actually - Michael missed one - there's one only signed by Simon. I'd have had one more but the forum theatre manager stole one lol.

Thanks again Kathie for getting these organised and harrasing stalking asking Simon to get them signed

You let them steal one - they should get their own - they work there!

Here I am, back from Aberdeen, and swinging from gloomy (It's all over!) to pretty hyper (It was brilliant!)!! I took my mother in law, who is registered blind but has some sight; we were in the third row, and although she couldn't see faces, she could see well enough to follow what was going on. We have managed to get her to get hearing aids, which have transformed her life, and she could hear the play perfectly - she was chuckling away all evening! I think I enjoyed this visit the most - Michael and Simon were both on top form, and I knew what to watch for. I laughed soooo much!
When they were about to blow open the safe, Michael flapped round behind the sofa and fell over. When he emerged, he hobbled to where simon was waiting, and said, "Ow, that hurt!" He stood there rubbing his foot and wincing, so Simon ad-libbed, "Well, that's what you get for mucking around!" What with Michael and the audience laughing, it was a minute or two before Simon could detonate the gelignite. During the sacking of the room, Michael was heading right across the stage, and flung two cushions vigorously behind him, one of which hit Simon on the head. We laughed, so Simon waited in mid stride, looking at Michael, who was looking around thinking "What?? What???" At the beginning of the 2nd act, when the phone rings, Simon goes to the record player to turn it off - or down? Anyway, I don't know whether he is really controlling the deck or whether someone was not on the ball, but the music didn't stop until he slammed the lid down!
After the performance I parked Mum and went down to the stage door - there were only two of us waiting - I forgot to ask the other woman's name, but she is involved with Michael's fansite - she went to 7 of the 8 performances in Glasgow, has now been twice in Aberdeen, and has a ticket for the last night in Newcastle, though she might not be able to go - can anyone beat that?? Michael was out first, and came straight up to me -he forgot my name, but not my face - and I've had a fairly radical haircut, so I don't look like the Wicked Witch of the West any more!! We had a wee chat - his foot was fine!! - and he signed both programmes for me. By this time Simon had come out - "You here again?!" - so I explained about bringing Mum, and that she has COPD so couldn't manage the walk to the stage door, but we could see her so he stood there waving to her - Bless! I hadn't the heart to tell him that she probably couldn't see him - it's the thought that counts! He also signed both programmes, and we had a brief chat - and I gave him my Sharpie. I bought several - he says he keeps losing them!!
I went back to where Mum was waiting for James to pick us up, which just happened to be at the exit of the theatre car park. Shortly after, Simon left - he was being driven, but smiled and waved energetically - but I didn't quite get Mum turned round in time to see him. And then Michael drove up. He waved, and was half out of the car park onto the main road, but he stopped, wound down the window and said hello to Mum. She said how much she had enjoyed the performance, and they shook hands, and she was sooo chuffed! I think that really made her night!!
So a great night was had by all - a fantastic performance given by two really smashing guys.

Hi Ali!

It was me you met outside the theatre in Aberdeen! :D How are you?!

Wasn't it great on Friday? I AM definitely going to Newcastle now, can't resist, I have to see the last night of this tour. Got my car booked and everything!

I saw Michael again on Saturday before the matinee, which was also a brilliant show. Michael made like he was going to "ping" a bra in the general audience direction from the balcony and Simon went "MILO! BEHAVE!". It was so funny!

I've had so much fun seeing Sleuth; I'm an original Michael fan but I have to say I've really been blown away by Simon's talent and his kindness and generosity with his time. He's a true gentleman and so wonderful to talk to - having two such great guys working together on stage is what makes this such a great play to go and see. And the fun they have on stage, things going flying etc... no two shows are the same, which is why I've loved going to see it several times and still can't get enough.

Was great to meet you Ali!

Hugs!

Haze x
