Saw the real Toby Young in How to Win Friends last night, at the Arts Theatre. Without a weblog I'd never remember that it was March last year when I saw the play at the Soho Theatre. Surreal and moderately self-indulgent as it clearly is to see someone playing themselves in a play they wrote about their own lives, Toby was great. Better than Jack Davenport, if that's possible. And they play's better: tighter, leaner, and almost brought a tear to my eye when he talked about his Dad.
