and that’s done..

Return to Albion is done. It went very well, I think. Certainly a lot better than we thought it was going to go: It was a devised piece (an almost oxymoronic term which means we wrote and developed it ourselves during the rehearsal process), and up until last week it really felt like a whole bunch of sketches and monologues. But it really came together in the final rehearsal week as the fat was cut away, revealing the common threads that had always unified it. Got a whole bunch of laughs, too, on the second night in particular.

I only had a small part, as I mentioned before – the Amazing Barry, a washed-up stage magician reduced to working on the streets. I shall miss him.

Sadly, I’m stuck in the office again firefighting while my castly cohorts are having their aftershow. Buggery.
