Letter To The Man (from the boy) had its first ever performance this Wednesday. The 6.30 show was sold out, even over-sold, so we packed in a selection of randomers, friends, family and TakeOverians. The show started off slightly fast, but I think I got into the swing by the end. The 8pm show was still pretty damn busy, with the group getting more into the interactive element as the show went on. Had some great feedback (“is was ASZZOME!!!!") but any more feedback don’t hesitate to e-mail me at email@example.com
So THANKS to everyone who came THANKS to TakeOver for hosting me and THANKS to Megan, Tom and Ruby who are all ace!
What does the future hold for LTTMFTB? Hopefully adapting the show for Barefoot in the Park in Leeds (watch this space) plus other possibilities may reveal themselves. It’s still a work in progress so we’ll see how the piece shapes up and evolves and changes...just like growing up.
If you missed the show, no sweat, I’m always performing somewhere r another. In fact, come down to Apply Within, a brand new spoken word and poetry night at Stereo down Gillygate in York with me and some other ace performers as well as open mic for anyone looking for perform! http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/event.php?eid=171691112883614
I think after doing so much poetry I might try and focus on some theatre-writing in the future, maybe like Inua Ellams’ work. I do want to include some poetry within the work, Sarah Kane or even Beckett style. We’ll see, eh?
Thanks everyone, 2011 is shaping up to be an ambitious affair!
