How far would you go to get a table at the smartest restaurant in town? In its tenth anniversary year, London’s Chocolate Factory celebrates by creating a brand new production of the show that put it on the map in 2004, Fully Committed.

Kevin Bishop will star as Sam. View Comments Fully Committed is Mode’s first play. The show opened at the Vineyard Theatre in 1999 and ran off-Broadway for a year and a half at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Since 2001 it has been one of the ten most produced plays in the United States.

Fully Committed is set in one of Manhattan’s hottest restaurants, where the city never sleeps and the phone never stops ringing. “Resting actor” Sam Peliczowski is in demand…but not for his acting. Instead he mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan’s number-one eatery and everyone wants a piece of him. As he juggles scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, fickle celebrities and an egomaniacal boss, Sam also has to find space to sort out his own life and flagging career.

Real Madrid have taken their appeal against expulsion from this season’s Copa del Rey to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).The 19-time winners were thrown out of the tournament for fielding the ineligible Denis Cheryshev in the first leg of their last-32 tie with Cadiz.Cheryshev scored in a 3-1 win, but he should have been serving a ban, imposed while he was on loan at Villarreal.Real Madrid claimed the winger was not personally told that he was suspended.Osasuna were thrown out of last season’s draw for a similar offence.Real’s initial appeal to the Spanish football association was rejected and after they had been thrown out of the competition, Real Madrid said they were sure “the final resolution will be favourable to the club”. They had still been advertising tickets to the return leg in the run-up to their appeal hearing.The club’s own tweet announcing Cheryshev’s goal has become a rallying point for rival fans and been re-tweeted 7,500 times.Cadiz’s fans at the game sang that Real boss Rafael Benitez should “look at his Twitter” as they became aware that Cheryshev should have been serving a suspension rather than playing.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
