So today is the big TECH day. Our first year in Edinburgh we got exactly 4 hours to tech a C Venues, including our get-in and get-out time (i.e. lugging our set, video, lights focus, etc. etc.). Nightmare of unfinishedness. In ’06 and now being at the fancy Traverse we get a whopping 8 hours of tech time which is real real luxury here at the Fringe. We are just having breakfast at the flat before a bit of rehearsal and heading over for these precious 8 hours.
The flat had been a WRECK when we walked in. Brian Scott (video designer) said it was “college cleaned” but after finding unseemliness between the cushions and on the sheets we determined it wasn’t even that, we got a professional cleaning crew, and I’m protesting for money back…so cross your fingers!
