Waiting for the pedestrian walk light to turn green while a couple of suspicious characters lurk nearby... probably Shakespeare Doubters, who are know to operate in this area.
The suspicious characters turn out to be Wally and Maria, our flatmates. And, just as I suspected, they're Shakespeare Doubters. You'll never guess what the conversation was about as we enjoyed lattes at the Brunel campus coffee shop. Multiple choice: Shakespeare, Mary Sidney, or all of the above.
Robin explains the Authorship Question to a clerk in a campus store while Maria (white coat) lurks nearby in case Robin need backup. Or, at least, I assume that's what Robin is doing, but maybe not.
Theatre update: Robin was able to score only one ticket to Jerusalem on Friday night, so I'll be blogging from the nearby pubs while she's being amazed by Mark Rylance's performance. I'll make sure she gives us a first-hand report.
