My dad, the magician blog
I am here at South Street Arts Centre, Reading. So are Andy and Laura. However, I need to write content. They need to hear what I have written. Whilst I am writing,they are listening to recordings of my stepdad and Mum talking about all manner of things relating to this project, such as me, magic, bringing up four kids, loving each other, how they first met, living in Cornwall in 1991. They report back to me with their findings and then it goes into more writings. We are a good team.
If you were to walk into our rehearsal room, it might look like we are working on separate things but we are all working for the same goal. I really like our ideas.
This show needs ideas.
Today and yesterday was weird but productive. Weird in the sense that we are not working full steam ahead on the surface but our minds are constantly thinking about it. I like to think, just because you are not working on something, doesn't mean you are not working on it. Anyway, I go to bed. It's day ten tomorrow. Must rest.
Night night. Tom, xxx
