A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

…Alien Wally and Mags decided to get them some kulture. What do kultured people do? Why, they go to the thee-ay-tah, they do!

And what do kultured people wear to the thee-ay-tah, one may ask? Well, Alien Wally and Mags thought they knew, but were worried that they had got it completely wrong, judging by the first person they met there.

They felt very awkward, until they realised that this was in fact one of the Hired Help, an usher checking their tickets at the door. Rather strange attire for an usher, but then this is Edinburgh and people here do have a unique fashion sense, so perhaps that extends to uniforms as well.

Not the most friendly of ushers either, was he. Pointed his gun at Alien Wally and Mags, he did. “Help us Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re our only hope!” our brave heroes cried. Repeatedly. Hey, if it worked for Leah…. They were finally saved by the presence of a barrwoomann, an interesting yet helpful creature from the far reaches of space (otherwise known as Glasgow). “May the Force be with you,” she intoned as she gave them their energy-replenishing medicine. The Force did indeed work its magic, and Alien Wally and Mags were able to proceed into the thee-ay-tah to watch One Man Star Wars. Very highly recommended!
