The Monster Is Rising
On Monday the seating bank arrives, with the chairs following swiftly. Each day the list of things to do seems to grow rather than shorten. Masking for the front of the stage. Moulton to drape above the lights. A changing station. A video relay for the operators. Where do you get hold of a Holy Water shaker thing for £10 or less?
At times the show just seems like a vast exercise in logistics but I think beneath it all and rising is a really strong show. Each day there is a moment that rocks you back on your heals with its strength. We are stitching these moments together. Time is running out but we know where we’re going. It could be spectacular. I hope it’s packed out.
P.S. For what it's worth, I note this is the 100th entry on this blog (and still not publishing deal).
Fancy dress shop specialising in 'Vicars and Tarts' costumes?
Ask at the local church if they have a spare?
It sounds brilliant ...
