Today was strange day, a day of contrasts. Made some more great discoveries though focus and concentration were off. Rehearsal room is not very forgiving when it comes to distractions, we’ve discovered. But had great fun going off-piste and rehearsing in a cupboard for the claustrophobia, and then outside so that we could look at the timing of the smoking moments. But it was so cold we then had to play a hardcore game of tag to sufficiently warm everyone back up again.
This morning, before Gotcha rehearsals, had a great meeting with a composer (Isobel Waller Bridge) who I met ages ago at this brunch at Mark Ravenhill’s house, so hopefully that’s another new and exciting collaboration to kick off this year. Then – rather serendipitously (I think) saw Mark himself at Will’s latest show (Biting Point at Theatre 503) as they’re working together again on an opera in April. Then we all walked (part of the way) home together over Battersea bridge…lovely.
