Despite my best efforts to the contrary (like very obviously forgetting one of the audition panel's names on the way out) I'm up aganst the big guns on June 9th.

Loving May

I'm not famous for my abilities as a self-promoter - this much is known. However, when "Loving April" came to my local venue even I realised that calling the Artistic Director and seeing if we could meet would be a good idea. I was seen for "The Firebird" at OTTC some years ago and also Chris Wallis (of Watershed) suggested her as a contact - so the lines of potential contact were established. All I had to do was pick up the 'phone.
Now this takes some balls, deep breathing, ready access to water and careful timing. But "screwing my courage to the sticking place" (if it's sticky why does it need screws? Surely overdoing it...) I make the call and have a very productive chat with Karen Simpson. She's doing Vertigo in the autumn and promises to look a my CV for it.
That was in April. Today, at the London Welsh Centre, is the fruits of that labour.
