-The Big Night-

 

 

 

Lesson 29 – The Big Night

David: What time do we have to get to the theatre?

Karen: The doors open at 7:30pm. We have to get the bus at 6:30. That should get us there in plenty of time.

Jeff: I’m really excited for Polly. Her first play as an author! It got some great feedback and it hasn’t even been performed in front of an audience yet…

Karen: Yes, she has done fantastically. I’m sure it is going to get some good reviews.

David: We have a little surprise for her.

Jeff: Really? What sort of a surprise?

David: We are going to have a party for her. She is expecting to go out for a dinner with the cast and crew but we have hired a venue. There is a big buffet, a band, and of course, champagne.

Jeff: Aw, that’s lovely of the pair of you! You didn’t have to do that!

Karen: We really wanted to. It’s been wonderful seeing her embrace the theatre with the passion I had for it. Perhaps more so…

David: We want Polly to have a great time tonight! One that she’ll remember for a very long time!

Jeff: I know that she couldn’t be more happier than she is right now. I think the party will send her over the edge.

Karen: It’s great to have a dream and Polly is just starting to live hers!

 

Facts: “Break a leg » is an idiom in theatre used to wish a performer « good luck ». The expression reflects a theatrical superstition in which wishing a person « good luck » is considered bad luck.
