Went to Peter Mumford’s Christmas party last night – very lovely (very starry) and amazing food. Though too much champagne (but surely there’s no such thing as too much champagne). Then up at the crack of dawn (ouch!) to go to Oxford and meet with the Oxford Playhouse who are taking The Man With the Flower in His Mouth for a week as part of our UK tour. All very lovely – I like the kind of meetings that involve walking round the cafes of Oxford. Then after lunch another meeting about some other productions they’re co-producing with Metta next year and in 2012 (very exciting – more on that anon), and then just time to sneak in a quick plug/pitch for Waiting (which maybe they’ll take for a night or two for that tour as well). We love the Oxford Playhouse!
