Clockwork Zeppelin Went to the Theatre, Sold Stuff, Met People and Used a Nice Table

This is the most wonderful Warwick St-John who absolutely stole the show by providing narration and switching between German, English and improvisation.  He did a great impersonation of a drunken soak (or was he method acting?) and occasionally chased actors lost from other plays in other theatres…at times it felt like the stage was constantly being invaded by some costumed lunatic or other..Laugh? I nearly choked on my smuggled Rolos…

I got a few ‘poppycocks!’ into the heckle which seemed to comprise most of the first 10 minutes or so as Mandrake attempted to demonstrate his machine to the society amid much bruhaha.

I was pleased to see my Steampunk rack of gauges comprising a part of the machine itself!  Most honoured indeed was Runcible-Sterling.

And of course the ‘Faradinator’ and the ‘Disrupticon’ made their entrance in the second half, mostly to chase off a load of pixies.

The laser dot on the Disrupticon looked great through the dry ice clouds.

As usual at such public events, I was accompanied by Brigadier General Ernest Hellver, hoping to catch a chance hint of a lady’s ankles.

I particularly liked the table we ‘borrowed’ . Unfortunately we were made to give it back. ‘Fingers’ Hellver is likely to try again on our next visit, so ushers be warned.

We were entertained by the fair lady Abigail 709B who might have a real name though we cant be sure.  She most certainly shared our creative zeal and does the most wonderful things in fabric, going so far as to match our tablecloth.

Hellver found a cake lady and bartered some of our wares for cake.  One wooden badge = One Coconut and Lemon Cupcake and One Double Chocolate cake thing.  All those years selling guns and whisky to natives on his last campaign has certainly paid off.
