meetings in cafes

I’m not a huge fan of auditions (too pressurized, too artificial and too short, always). I prefer to meet people for coffee and take it from there. So today I toddled off to Victoria station to meet a Brighton-based actor just off the train. After an initial mix up with venues (turns out there are two cafe Ritazzas in Victoria station, both of which are next to two separate Boots. Very confusing.) we eventually found eachother. He was in a bowler hat, I had a poppy in my hair…casting is a bit like blind dating in many ways…

So we’ll try him out in the reading of ‘Sexing the Cherry’ and take it from there.

But why are there two separate Boots in Victoria station? Surely one is enough!
