You know what they say, "an actor cannot truly call himself an actor until he's performed at the Globe". That, and never work with animals.

You know what they say, "an actor cannot truly call himself an actor until he's performed at the Globe". That, and never work with animals.

London is having the hottest weather since weather began, Ed's Australian nephew has come to stay, and the latest fad of 'Blue Spruce' furniture is spreading like wild fire.

When Toast begs Jane to get him in at the Globe Theatre, he's less than impressed with the director, Daz Klondyke, who's rumoured to be the hottest thing in UK theatre.

However when he's cast in Klondyke's all-dog version of Twelfth Night, it's not long before Toast gets his fingers burnt as he tries to become a real actor.
