Jane Birkin in Women of Troy, London Royal National Theatre

Jane Birkin appeared as Andromache in Annie Castledine’s theatrical production of Women of Troy in 1995.  Although I obviously recall meeting Jane twice at the theatre whilst the show was on, I recall very little about the play itself except that one of the characters said “We shall go to Argos!”, which I guess is only funny if you’re childish and if you happen to have a catalogue retailer of that name in your country.  I didn’t even recall that Peter McEnery was in it, so it shows you how bad my memory is these days.
