Sentence of the day

Lloyd Evans in the Spectator, reviewing the play Deathtrap by Ira Levin at the Noel Coward Theatre:
I sat there watching them smugly, feeling rather like the 17th-century pope who used to link 100 monks together with a copper wire and observe as a huge charge of static electricity was passed through them.
How wonderful to be that 17th-century pope. They didn’t have Sky back then, did they, nor NZ’s Next Top Model so they had to make their own fun.
