"Love comes and goes away..."

The path of true love apparently ran anything but smoothly for one of the Seven Brides at London's Haymarket Theatre on Wednesday evening.
As the first half approached its end, so flagged the actor playing Ephraim (Ephraim? Funny name for an, er, white - sorry, Derek and Clive...), and he slinked off-stage to leave merely six brothers and one among seven brides feeling rather at a loss and like a spare part...
Only for an understudy to bravely take over at half-time, restoring the brides'n'brothers balance, yet rather interfering with the basic mathematics of it all.
Hmm, doesn't quite sound the same: Seven Brides For Seven, Then Six, Overall Eight Brothers...

I think that sounds like a great name for a play, actually.
