The post’s arrived, and it’s a BFI programme for August! As well as the usual delights, a Simon Gray season brings us the film Butley, which stars Richard O’Callaghan. As the August programme isn’t open for booking yet, it’s not on the BFI website, but I can tell you that Butley is on Sunday 14 August at 15:20, and Tuesday 16 August at 20:20. Which coincides nicely with my visit to Edinburgh. Arses.
Comedy fans may also be interested to know that the Gray season also includes Old Flames, starring Stephen Fry and Miriam Margolyes, Unnatural Pursuits, starring Richard Wilson and Nigel Planer, and After Pilkington, starring Miranda Richardson.
