A Public Apology from ‘Mister 10%’
In the 1967 film Mister Ten Percent, Percy Pointer realises he has signed away 110% of the rights to his play. Our problem isn’t the money – although more is always welcome – but the tickets. All sold out and now there are too many people promised ‘comps’, some of whom (whisper it), are going to be disappointed.
I never thought, not even in my wildest, that we would be in the position we now find ourselves – apologising to people who cannot get a ticket. People are calling The Unity, calling in to the box office and no doubt trying online to get tickets. There is now a reserve list that is growing by the day.
A nice problem to have, and a sign that we are likely to get at least another run out of it. But, in the meantime, this is a public apology to anyone promised a ticket who can’t get in to see the play next week. I’d offer to apologise in person, but will be hiding from about 5pm on Tuesday evening.
In the meantime, check out these latest pics from rehearsals.
