Kudos to amazing character actor Paul Mooney who recently played the part of an delivery driver and an adjudicator in the same day for 3 days running. Working with Team Spirit Providing a refeshingly different event for Dunhumby, it actually meant he spent three days assessing groups work in a team building activity as an adjudicator. In reality he managed to eat cakes and drink cocktails, and be generally entertained by the delegates, as each team tried to impress him in their various tasks! It’s an actors life. This week he’s directing John Godbers “Bouncers”!
Fantastically busy week ahead of us with lots of storytelling for schools, roleplay training for banks, and even a version of THE SCOTTISH PLAY. Looking forward to it all and getting ready for the week and to working with some splendid actors again, Charlie Ryan, Alice Rowbottom and Mae Brogan amongst them.
We are most recently engaged in providing actors for Role play training for a large financial institution, (okay, bank), who are investing in the future of their staff and doing some great work in the community. Working with the training provider and his colleagues is a satisfying experience as they are so good at organising the logistics, it leaves our actors free to develop their roles into believable characters and so enhance the training to make it as immersive as possible for the trainees.

This is the month other people go on holiday or lounge around. We get all pointy and tidy up, train, re-write scripts and clear out dusty cupboards, usually finding useful props thought long gone, half finished scripts for plays and forum theatre and corporate training days. It also applies to the internet, where we can take the time to clean out our spam filters and freshen everything up in time for the autumn,(fall) season.
It’s pretty smelly in here and there is some really nasty rotten spam clogging the ether. Cleaned. Done. Simple. We have no need of naff sunglasses,…
It all make sense in the heat. No really. Because everyone has gone on holiday for a week and it’s all gone quiet We’re using the time to tidy up, sort costumes, organise scripts and market some exciting new ideas. Writing new scripts is always the most enjoyable part for me, it has the potential and promise to be anything at this stage and the process of creating, whether it’s a snappy piece of street entertainment, invisible theatre or a huge production like the game show with Alistair McGowan we wrote, I love it all!
Actually no, it’s the fabulous Rosalind Parker facilitating our French Revolution workshop at the British museum but she looks great and what a glare she gives! Enough to make the proles quiver! Thankfully she didn’t use it too much on the children who came to the workshop and they successfully chopped off her head.
Flight recorder in hand, Captain Dingbat ready for take off!
