Adelaide! Once again, like a determined pup dragging a particularly recalcitrant stick in through the pet door, Annabel Crabb has convinced Leigh Sales to come back to South Australia, a state in which Crabb was fortunate enough to be born and raised and with which Queenslander Sales could only dream of having an association.
Once again, bumbling colleagues Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb have confidently booked The Enmore, only to slump into the customary subsequent round of intense self-questioning as to why anyone would pay good money to hear a couple of ageing hacks crap on about the books they’ve recently enjoyed. Last year, the pair panickedly recruited stage goddesses Pamela Rabe and Virginia Gay to paper over (magnificently) what was otherwise the essential paucity of talent on display. This year, let’s face it, probably won’t be as good but it’ll still be fun to see the expressions on their faces as it all goes to custard. Plus there’s a working bar, so see you there yeah?
