About four months BC (Before COVID), I was in Adelaide working with a client. The week was progressing well and the end was in sight. Dave, my client, invited me to join him in a visit to the theatre. He had two tickets to the Adelaide performance of Dame Edna’s farewell tour of Australia, and his wife was unable to attend.
So we popped into a tram, entered the Convention Centre and found our seats, ready to be entertained. Now, for those who haven’t come across Dame Edna – Dame Edna Everage – she is a grand old Dame of the stage, a veritable icon of Australian culture, sort of. In reality she is one of two alter egos of the actor Barry Humphries AO CBE. Barry is getting on, being 85 years old at the time of this performance. Dame Edna of course is ageless.
