Yesterday I heard there were still a few spots available to attend this:

The reply came in at 1am. Yes, three spaces remain.
Knowing full well a full 7-8 hours had elapsed, I had a happy little freak out and then emailed to say I would like one of those three spots if they had not be snapped up.
40 minutes later, this landed in my mail box:
I'd be delighted to reserve a place for you. I will get C.G., the Stephen Joseph Theatre's box office manager email you in April to arrange payment."
I greeted this email in my cool, mature fashion....by screaming madly and running through the apartment doing Muppety flails.
