The actor's life for me

I just got back in from a "reading" for this autumn's drama circle play. A "reading" is, in case you don't know, the meeting where the would-be actors read out bits of the play, and the director decides who is going to play which role. We are doing "Over My Dead Body" - a very funny black comedy. I'm playing Mark, the somewhat bemused, hapless son-in-law of the main character. For a few anxious minutes I thought that I was going to be asked to play the 69 year old widower. This means rehearsals every Monday and Thursday evening for the next ten weeks. Ho hum - no pain no gain!

Branching out

I've been blogging at the East Lothian Council Exc-el site for a few months now, and decided it was time to set up a proper blog for myself. So here I am! I expect to be blogging mainly about stuff.
