Yesterday we had tickets for the last play in our Soulpepper subscription, Harold Pinter's The Caretaker.
I can't tell you how it was, because we didn't go. At the last minute, we blew off the play and went out for lunch and a drink - and it was just what we needed. Somehow the play felt like an obligation instead of a treat. Not going felt like skipping school! I was just sorry I didn't know sooner, because I could have given someone the tickets.
The subscription was fun, and I'm glad we did it, but we're not going to renew. I'm interested in CanStage, but their 2007 season does not appeal to me. Chances are we'll just see a play here and there.
I think instead I need to put more music back in our lives. We used to go to shows and concerts all the time, but I think our baseball obsession pushed that out of the way.
