Fare play to yer…
Out of the blue I received an amazing message from a friend, Jo, that I thought I’d pass on. It’s 6 months since the play was last performed in Liverpool. It received great support and some special reviews, including a ten out of ten from the Liverpool Echo. You do wonder though, among all the other shows, TV programmes, concerts, etc. that people experience, to what degree does your work stay with people. By this account we shouldn’t be too worried. A better endorsement than this would be hard to find:
My partner was chatting to a taxi driver on his way somewhere the other day. The cabbie asked him about his hobbies and if he goes to the theatre much. He said he doesn’t go much, but that he had been to see Waiting for Brando not long ago and enjoyed that.
The cabbie then said “OMG that Brando play was amazing. I went to see it 3 times!”
How lovely is that to know that random cabbies are telling strangers how great your play was. Thought you should know.
Thanks Jo. X
