It is nice to see we do not disagree about everything. Your taste in poetry is not dissimilar from mine. As to Stoppard, I prefer Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead, but Tomáš Straussler, is nevertheless a witty and able playwright. And one of your finer imports.

A very attractive town, Whiters, and surrounded by superb countryside. Alas, I can't speak for the fish!

Well, I have been exceedingly lucky, PeterG, to have directed three of his plays. I just wish I had done more.

George Butterworth's name is one of the thousands on the Menin Gate.

Duffers Ludlow is indeed a thoroughly delightful place and I understand something of a foodie destination of choice but the country town is Shrewsbury, pronounced Shrowesbury.

It also happens to be only a few miles from the Burgers ancestral home.
