So half the family have travelled down to @neilreading ‘s stomping ground, Arena Theatre in Wolves! The Force Foxes are outnumbered maybe 2:1 but we couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. Kit has got a beautiful stage to play with, Doug has got a grand piano to play on and the writers have got the theme of “Out of the Darkness” to playwrite about! The Directors and Actors at the Halls got the party started following a trip to ASDA.
And by collaboration, I mean drinking..
We’re especially pleased to have Kerri and @jodipaulwooster over from Seattle, cooing over the novelty of a plastic shopping bag.. until it struggled under the weight of all their wine purchases. Blagging “free” cups from the Seattle Coffee Co. was a home comfort though!
And we really do owe our thanks to Kerri who introduced 14/48 to @amychrister1 and this got the ball rolling.
Now we’re back in Wolves 10 years on, with Neil’s incarnation being SO NEIL, it’s untrue! Happily assisted by The Pove, Fran, John and many more.. the swag is excellent, the welcome was superb and the drinks are flowing..
Much love to our family who are missing tonight but welcome to all the new members!
Time for bed… Well, not for everyone… Good luck to @ivoryfishbone and all the other writers who will work through the night to create the scripts for our first night..
