And have you seen these?

Oh good, your crumpets.

- I told the stagehands to get them for you.

- Well, they didn't. I had to ask them.

I had to talk to a stagehand.

And look, they put on too much butter.

It's pooling, pooling, Catherine.

That's why it's your job

to be there with my crumpets,

so they get just enough butter, and...

Excuse me?

My job is Gad's Hill Theater

costume designer,

not crumpet butteriser.

I do that for you because you're my friend.

But still,

have a look at them, they're pooling.

Eden, I know you feel better

when I'm there to watch you perform,

but I couldn't tonight.

Don't worry.

I know you were brilliant as always.

I don't need you to tell me I was brilliant,

I know I was brilliant.

But as a costume designer,

I thought you might want to do your job,

and see the dress you made onstage.

I understand.

So, what was so important

that you couldn't come upstairs?

Look around you, Eden.

Look at the tree, it's Christmas Eve.

We wanted to celebrate a little

before we all go off on holiday.


Who said anything about a holiday?

- Excuse me?

- What?

- No holiday?

- No!

No holiday?

- But it's...

- Christmas!

I'm aware it's Christmas,

which means there's only two weeks

before you will get

the privilege of being

in Eden Starling's new show.

You should be begging to rehearse.

No, no, no, no.


This is an outrage!

- Eden, we can't work on Christmas.

- We have people coming over.

- There's a turkey to stuff.

- And pies to bake.

Oh, we can't be here.

Eden, please reconsider, I beg of you.


You don't want to work on Christmas?

You're not dedicated enough to this theatre?

Fine, stay home. But if you do,

don't bother coming back, ever.
