I'd say queuing for returns is always worth a try if you are willing to stand for a few hours. I've never failed yet in a returns queue and that includes the final performance of Jerusalem and shows at the tiny Donmar.If yo are willing to pay top price I think yo should have a good chance.

Also, has anyone else heard the rumour that they are now looking at women as a possible replacment for Bertie Carvel, when he leaves in July? I think a lot of the humour would be taken away, by doing that.

Anyone heard anything on the grapevine about who's replacing Bertie as Trunchbull?

And this is the information given on the Broadway casting calls:
Seeking a MALE actor to play this female character, 30s–40s. Actor MUST be 6 foot plus. Trunchbull is headmistress of Crunchem Hall Primary School. Miss Honey's aunt. Once a famous athlete, Trunchbull is described as a "Gigantic Holy Terror," a "fierce tyrannical monster" who "marches like a storm trooper with long arms swinging" with an "aura of menace". High baritone with strong top F#. Needs EXTREMELY good enunciation and vocal dexterity. Should be quite a physical character actor – must be physically fit and agile – able to convincingly play a "woman". This is NOT a drag role.
So no - absolutely no chance of the role being cast to a woman. Thankfully.
