It’s fun sometimes to do away with the debauchery of Friday night drinks and opt rather for a seemingly more sophisticated evening at the theatre. I find myself feeling significantly more highbrow holding a ticket to an opening night while mingling with Melbourne’s theatregoing crowd, than trawling for bars. The mad rush to get there on time though reminds me that I am indeed not highbrow and rather more likely disorganised and unpredictable.
