Spend! Spend! Spend!

November 2001 took Nathan back to Germany for the English Theatre Frankfurt's production of Spend! Spend! Spend!

The show is a musical based on the life of Pools Winner, Viv Nicholson, and tells the story of her journey from impoverished Yorkshire housewife, to record-breaking recipient of (at that time) the largest ever win on the Littlewoods' Football Pools. When asked by the press what she was going to do with all that money, she famously replied that she was going to "Spend! Spend! Spend!"

True to her word, Viv did just that, and within a few short years, and with a good many husbands along the way, had spent the lot!

Unfortunately, some things are just not meant to be, and Nathan felt, for numerous reasons that he was unable to continue working in Frankfurt, so he made the decision to return to England in December. The show ran until March 9th, 2002.
