|I really liked these curtains as a back drop for the table...|
I meet up with my generous hosts for the evening and set up. And they really are good at Offton and Willisham Village Hall - welcoming, helpful and really enthusiastic. I was put onto the space by a friend Mark, who was in The Juliet Inquiry last year and he suggested touring the show there. It went well and so I was really looking forward to coming back.
Slowly an audience arrived and the ritual began. Share your Good and Bad Deeds - and the conversion begins. It's usually around how difficult it is to think of a Good Deed and how hard it is to choose a Bad.
And they're a good audience, they listen. The space works well with the play - a slight echo, enough to create atmosphere, not enough to destroy clarity.
Afterwards it's time for tea (I'm on antibiotics at the moment so can't have alcohol - boo!) and a chat with the audience. Finally home and this blog. As per, here are some of the Good and Bad Deeds we shared. And a v. short snippet of video - I didn't have time to film more.
