Seven Ages ending in Chocolate

This show at the Guildhall can be seen here advertised in the window of AfPic.

It was based round Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man, and improvised in seven parts from babyhood through to second childhood.

The show was good: but my pictures are NOT. This is Kevin, as a young woman, trying out flirtation techniques on a volunteer from the audience.

Here are more blurred pictures, ending with death in white mask, and holding a sickle, coming to the old man in stage seven as he finished remembering his life - a short life on the stage made up of suggestions written on pieces of paper by the audience.

"If there is an afterlife, all I ask of God ... - the old man picked up the last piece of paper - ... is Chocolate."
