I’ve been getting busy again, it’s been fun. First off, as I’ve said before, I worked with Ribcaged Theatre on a production of Macbeth. I spent a week in Clitheroe, the director very kindly allowed me to sleep in his flat for a few nights. I met a lot of great people, all very good performers. What was strange was that I only had a few rehearsals, but the company welcomed me in and I got on with all of them. I didn’t know what to expect of the show, but I have to say, I think it was great and a really fun experience. I’m hoping to work with them again in the future. Here’s some images of the show…
So that’s over and done with, on my way home from Clitheroe I got a lift home from my mum. She drove us through the Trough of Bowland at 11.30pm… terrifying. Although we did still see sunset at near enough midnight which was pretty awesome.
Next up, I am doing a double bill at The Black Lion, Salford with my good friend Josh Coates as part of Nowt Part of Festival. We have a wordpress set up for it here, a facebook event and you can get tickets for any of the shows from here. Josh is performing Stevie Wonder’s Stern Warning and I am presenting some of The Waiting Man.
Finally, Paper People Theatre are back on it, making a 30 minute Western for Nozstock festival. It’s a bit different for us, the show uses audience volunteer’s to fill in the parts of the Hero and the Villain whilst we fill in the background characters and manipulate the volunteers as well as the set and props in order to shape the story around our hapless victims. All this is elaborated on by our live band who, with our help, are currently writing a series of original songs. We’re planning on setting up a crowd funding campaign in the next week in order to help raise some funds for making the show, so keep your eyes open for when I start spamming you with that 🙂
So yeah, that’s what I’m up to. Hope you enjoyed the update. If you didn’t, too late you’ve read it now.
