Strangely today has become a day of advice. Met a director friend for lunch who needed advice on a personal problem, then sat on a panel at a Young Vic workshop advising young people about making their own work and running a theatre company. Also in both email and by phone have been asked my advice about a whole range of things both personal and professional. So today I am the Oracle. Cool.

Best advice I’ve ever been given – the advice you give is the advice you need to hear. Actually on all fronts that is true for everything I’ve advised people on today.
