THEATRE OFFER: SEE 'DEAD FUNNY' FOR HALF PRICE

THE re-opening of Terry Johnson's Dead Funny in September was more an encore than a revival. A national tour and a change of cast apart, it has deservedly been a West End fixture (at the Vaudeville, and now the Savoy) since the end of its initial sell-out run at Hampstead Theatre in April 1994. Following the Donmar's recent revival of his 1982 play Insignificance (in which Marilyn Monroe explains relativity to Albert Einstein in a hotel bedroom), and with the imminent West End opening of Hysteria (1993) - which imagines the equally surreal meeting of Freud and Dali - Johnson, the 1994 Lloyds' Playwright of the Year, must be beside himself with mirth.
