Marzipan was the cat at the theatre door. She was also the cat on the theatre stairs.
The woman-who-feeds-me often spoke of Marzipan, the Queen of the Astor Theatre in St Kilda. Everyone who went along to a show knew her.
Sadly, Marzipan is no longer with us. After a long illness, she finally left us.
Marzipan was 21. One of my contemporaries.
