Well, allthough I feel like that post that the Guardian lady said about theatre was accurate, I still seemt o be writing for fucking theatre and doing the fucking Momentum thing! When Will I be too old to go to these fucking youthclubs and houses of the unshaven? I really did think that last year was my first and last experince of it but Nooooooooo, they go and up the age limit and I (stupid that I am and daftly dedicated to writing) still go.
It was great last year 'cos Emma Rosoman ran it and she's fantastic. Its somebody else this year and (true I really havent given it a chance yet) she got us to do weird clapping and chanting and all I kept thinking was "I could be in the pub but I'm here doing this. What???"
and I know I'll still end up going every week, cos I want to develop this play for Ladyfest, Fuck TWP, seriously, with a long hard pole, cos htey wont do anything I come out with. Not cos its shit (allthough I'm bound to say that!) but 'cos its all about getting bums on seats and doing something for the theatre going public (who, needless to say, are somewhat removed from my background and experince). If you want the "cutting edge" of performance and stuff look at the DIY Music festivals, the little random nights, even the once-illegal soundsystems for something creative and different! Just be prepared to tone down any slightly southern / BBC english stylee accent that might arise!
