LETTER: Shameful after theatre tragedy

We went to see the wonderful That’ll Be The Day on Friday, March 11. Unfortunately a gentleman in the audience had a heart attack. Two ambulances were called but they couldn’t resuscitate him which, as I understand, meant that they had to call the police and coroner because of the sudden death.

This family had no doubt got dressed up and looked forward to their night out.

The show was understandably delayed about 90 minutes. I would have quite understood if it had been cancelled.

The following morning we popped into the Congress Theatre to acquire some more tickets only to find people complaining and wanting their money back! They were complaining that the show didn’t continue and, worst of all, complaining that they had to sit near a dead body.

Wow. What has happened to humanity? Someone lost their life and someone has lost their beloved husband, father and/or brother and these petty people are worried about themselves. I am ashamed to be part of this human race.
