THERE may well be 332 shopping days left to the big day but I'm still able to bring you the breaking news of what the Gate's festive fare for Christmas 2013 will be.
"Before Colin Firth ever made that 'lake scene' famous in the BBC series or Keira Knightley ever starred in the film, the Gate produced an adaptation of the famous novel in 1994, directed by Alan Stanford.
"In honour of the 200th anniversary of its publication, we will be reviving that same production which was last seen 12 years ago."
In the meantime, Stanford is directing Bedroom Farce at the Gate which opens next Thursday.
Then in February the indefatigable Colgan will be travelling to Perth with Watt by Samuel Beckett for the Perth International Arts Festival.
