An Actor's Life


Back home

Well wasn’t that fun? A month in Shanghai that flew by and what seemed like the speed on sound. I’ve been working for the Natural Theatre Company on behalf of the British Council at the UK Pavilion for Expo 2010. It was incredible, the thing didn’t look real.

We got back home at midnight Sunday (7am Monday in our heads) and on Monday afternoon I met with Ian McGlynn to discuss his casting of Anti-Panto. We were inundated with young female applicants but a little light on older males, as a result Malus is about twenty years younger than written. Take that Oil of Olay! I’m really excited about the show, the read through before China went very well indeed and the cast sound great. Doron of Sketchy at Best will be returning to the New Old Friends family and we couldn’t be happier to have him. Tickets are already selling well but there are still seats to be had – 01225 463362. Book ’em up.

In other New Old Friends news; Sketchy at Best hits the road next May for the company’s first national tour! We are still finalising the last few venues but all is looking groovy. The company is like a Peugot; we go from strength to strength. We are not like a Citroen; pseudo teutonic French rubbish. I leave you with a dressing room shot from Shanghai, it’s me and Heff in too much lycra being bees.

Comment by Laura

They are French, but proud unlike the German masquerading Citroen.

In sad news it looks like Doron won’t be able to take up the role in Anti-Panto due to London time constraints. He will be missed.
