So it’s another rainy day here. The weather I have to say has been by all accounts unseasonably crappy, so I bought a pair of Doc Martens (inspired by a great Nirvana article we’ve been passing around) and Libs bought a rain coat. But spirits are relatively good after a nice day off yesterday with sunshine in the spiegeltent garden. We got to sit with Steve Cramer (journalist here and a good friend of the company’s) and Matt and Jake H. enjoyed many beers before heading back home at dawn this morning.
Houses are totally packed, and there is a…wonderful…embarrasing but wonderful series of photos on the cover and front pages of Fest Magazine of the TEAM! You can probably see it – along with a beautifully written feature at www.festmag.co.uk. Exciting. And there’s going to be a spot on the BBC about the show, and next week we have an upcoming radio spot. Busy goodness. We also saw it’s a beautiful 72degrees back home, and got a twinge for NYC. Daniel Kitson, the performer/writer/comic is doing a piece here called 66a Church Road which was my favorite thing I’ve seen thus far, and it’s all about home and the pain and joy of nostalgia – definitely has made me excited to bring this show and our butts home at the end.
But conversations with presenters all over has begun in full, and hopefully the work is going to have a LONG LIFE ahead of it. But first, NYC.
