The one brilliant thing about teching 10 plays in one day is that it means you can only tech for an hour. That said the worst thing about teching 10 plays in one day is that it means you can only tech for an hour.
And hilariously – given that our piece has an almost constant sound-scape – we were given a ‘quiet’ slot in which we couldn’t make any noise, because the chef who lives above Theatre503 likes to have a nap every day from 2-4. On the plus side it means we get another hour to tech tomorrow morning. So all is going surprisingly well.
Managed to cram in a meeting with a prospective producer for the tour of Cocteau in the Underworld, a meeting with Victoria Brittain and Heather about the tour of Waiting and a meeting with my agent. Phew.
And even had time to see A Dog’s Heart at ENO this evening. Amazing – loved it. Fantastic puppetry by Mark Down and Blind Summit. And just brilliant theatricality. As I said to Will in the interval – so much to steal!
So good to have only an hour to tech, after all.
