On the train back from Stratford upon Avon, where I have spent the loveliest of days visiting my old year-out course director Deborah Moody, and doing some workshops with the current students. An utter delight, and a reminder that it’s the best possible way to spend your gap year, if you’re at all theatrically minded.

Then to top it all off one of my oldest and dearest friends – Tom Richards (artistic director of horror theatre company ‘Theatre of the Damned‘, who also did the Year Out Drama course the year before me, rocked up, having been to see the RSC‘s Matilda, so we had a great catch-up too.

All in all a day of reminiscences and happy happy memories.
