Last night was our first performance of Kiss Me in the Pleasance Theatre, which was also our first ever performance in England and it got me thinking how much Sunday’s Child has developed over the past three years. It all started with Eva, our friend Melissa and I dancing in a kitchen in university halls and now we’re performing three nights in London to a whole host of theatre heads. I can honestly say we didn’t expect this would happen.
However, is it just luck? coincidence? or fate? I suppose this a completely open ended question and something we’ll never truly know but these opportunities are not something any of us want to go to waste and it’s had got me tingling with undercurrent excitement of what our next project has in store. But I’m definitely getting ahead of myself the others are all currently enjoying a lunch that everyone at NSDF and IdeasTap have been raving about. Unfortunately, I’m missing out but I get to look forward to tomorrow when we have two more exciting sessions with Douglas Rintoul and Julia Ford, literally cannot wait!
And following the advice of Tamara Harvey after her amazing workshop with us, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has ever been involved in Sunday’s Child over the years, in all forms – big or small! You’ve all made it what it is today and that is a thing I’m extremely proud of and you should all be too!
Eva always tells me off for being super soppy at the end of my posts so i’ll end with a light-hearted joke… (this is also somewhat relevant to our new set!)
How many directors does it take to change a lightbulb?
Hmmm… a lightbulb… allow me to ponder the changing of the bulb.
How many producers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Sorry, a new lamp isn’t in the budget.
How many lighting designers does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. It’s a carefully orchestrated blackout.
