re 'butlers' - a great movie The Ruling Class about 1972 has a scene where Arthur Lowe as the butler inherits from his deceased Earl, and walks into the drawing room with a loaded teatray,
drops it on the floor, exclaims "Thirty thousand smackers!" and exits.

The Evening Standard of London has an award for 'Promising New Playwright' and in 2005 they surprised themselves when awarding it to a woman - Nell Leyshon (age 44) for
'Comfort me with apples'.

She has 2 novels as well and has just adapted Daphne du Maurier's
'Don't Look Now'for the stage

(I recall really getting a shreiking fright when the creepy movie version midget stabbed Julie Christie).

that Evening Standard playwright award comes with a CHEQUE for thirty thousand english smackers ... the pseudy melbourne/sydney age/smh magazine should be so comforting of the performing arts ...

I've avoided seeing Don't Look Now after a few people told me of their own shrieking fright.
Might wait for a look at the play now.
