Sworn enemy

21st October 2005 at 01:00
Two young actors in Simon Burt's play Bottle Universe, which opened at the Bush Theatre in west London last week, nearly didn't make it.

The director Sue Dunderdale had taken Mikey North and Jessica Harris, who play schoolkids in detention, on a research trip to Fortismere school in north London.

While there, they ran through a scenes in a corridor that involves a lot of swearing. Out popped the head who, thinking they were his students, thundered it was "not the type of language he wanted used in the school".

They only just managed to escape detention.
