Bandwagon Theatre: Our Edinburgh Fringe (Day 10)

Before I begin, I want to make it clear that I'm in the middle of some celebrating.

It's our last night - I can't believe it. So we're all having a last little gathering and will be visiting some local establishments later on this evening.
I suppose as it's the last night I should start summing up our time here, but putting all of our experiences into just a few lines is near impossible. I've learnt plenty, not only about the Fringe but about the people I'm here with, Edinburgh and coping with lots to do. As I'm feeling particularly sentimental after a couple of glasses of wine, my rule today is this:

RULE NUMBER 10: Enjoy every minute. I've had the time of my life here and I can definitely say that I'll be working hard to make sure I come back. It's amazing if you do it properly. Seriously.

So today's show was hands down the best performance we'd done yet. I love it when a show just seems to click. You can spend weeks trying to perfect something and not be able to put your finger on what's missing, and then you hit it just right by not really doing anything that different. But the atmosphere, mood, audience and feel of the room on the day can just bring out that extra something in a performance. So here's to tomorrow, and our last performance at this years festival. We'll make it a goodun.

See you back in Cardiff - for my last blog. I'm going to miss Edinburgh.

Great blog Kat, glad I've been a part of Bandwagon's first Edinburgh festival experience! Can't wait for our next crack at it, armed with a years worth of Ed Fringe experiences...

A wonderful blog Kat, it gives a great insight into what its like for a new company to take a piece of work to the festival. I have really enjoyed reading it.
