The Philosopher's Tale

When was the last time P-P gave us a farce? I can tell you when the next one is, Monday 11th Of March, when debutant Fauzia Rahman brings us her hour long stage play, which is, according to mentor Peter Thompson:

"a sort of Whitehall Farce in which the Great Moral Philosopher gives a highly acclaimed paper to some Royal Society or other in Brighton and is congratulated by all the dailies for his defence of the moral imperatives such as telling the truth and never breaking a promise.  His satisfaction, on reading reviews in the papers back home the next day, is undermined by the [unfounded] belief that a beautiful student admirer had a passionate encounter with him in his hotel bedroom.  OK so he is very short-sighted, but if it wasn't her, who was it? and why? or was it all a delicious dream?  What should he tell the missus? Oh, unlucky prof!"
