Is that you, Ann? How are you?

A. Fine! And how are things with you?

M. Also good! I'm ringing you up to tell you our class is going to the theatre in a week or so. Would you like care to join us? I should very much like to have you — if you care to (if you like), of course.

A. With great pleasure, Mary. What's on that interests you?

M. Gogol's "Inspector General".

A. Wonderful! I haven't seen the new staging yet, and shall look forward to an entertaining evening. By the way, will it be an evening show or a matinee?

M. I want to see the first night performance.

A. You'll let me know the exact date, won't you?

M. Certainly, as soon as we get the tickets.

A. Why don't you try to book tickets by phone? I always do. Let me try and ring up the box-office.

M. I know it's possible to reserve seats over the phone, but I prefer to pick up the tickets myself.

A. Oh, yes, Mary! I've just seen a poster announcing the coming of the English company of actors. Shall I go to the box-office and inquire about it?

M. All right, do! Shouldn't like to miss them. See you later.

A. Cheerio!
