Brighton & Oxford with ‘Troublesome People’ well, what can I say?… LOVED the tour so far. A really great team – lots of laughs. Both theatres (the Lantern at Brighton and the Old Fire Station at Oxford) were fab. The world premier of the play happened on 15th May, which happens to be International Conscientious Objectors Day – a complete coincidence! serendipity… In Brighton we had a very special guest in the audience at one of the performances – Caroline Lucas, the MP for Brighton Pavilion (Green Party), who is a friend of the writer of Troublesome People, Jill Haas. Caroline loved the show and chatted to us afterwards. I’ll let the reviews speak for themselves… https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/2015/troublesome-people/ http://www.remotegoat.com/uk/review/11983/worthy-of-rattigan-and-priestley/ http://brighton.fringeguru.com/reviews/brighton-2015/troublesome-people
Filmed at Notts racecourse today for their promo ﬁlm to be aired on Notts Tv. It was ladies day, so loads of outrageous hats (and outﬁts!). My middle son Eddie was part of the ﬁlm and behaved impeccably throughout- at 9 he is just the right age to listen & respond, but still be willing. He has the added bonus of a cute face (but I would say that, wouldn’t I?). After ﬁlming we watched the beautiful horses prepare & the ﬁrst race. Great atmosphere.
