Ok, so I spent all year waiting for our time in Edinburgh to arrive and it's day 6 already. I suppose they do say 'time flies when you're having fun'.
'Having fun' being the operative words there - today I surcomed to some comedy and definitely made a wise choice by seeing Milton Jones in his stand up show 'Lion Whisperer'. Entertaining, funny and without too much swearing or naughty stuff. Right up my street.
Now I'm sure I should probably tell you about how our show went today - but I'm afraid we've got into such a rhythm that today wasn't much different to yesterday. What I can tell you is that if I'm brutally honest, we all agreed that yesterday's performance had a slight edge on today's, but this is merely the reality of running the show day after day. So here's my rule for today;
RULE NUMBER 6: Find a way to keep up your energy for each and every performance. It's difficult, but every audience deserves the best show you're capable of giving them.
I'm meeting so many people on the streets of Edinburgh and I've now even come across two people that I used to go to school with. Being here whilst there's so much going on is a very real reminder of exactly how many creative people there are in the UK, and the welsh companies are truly flying the flag in Edinburgh.
I find that I'm falling dangerously into that stereotypical welsh tourist role whenever I meet somebody else from the green, green grass of home. In fact, I wondered past somebody sporting a welsh accent earlier today, and I instantly assumed they were not only an immediate friend but proceeded to talk to them for 15 minutes trying to figure out how I might know them and the place they're from. Because of course, everyone from Wales knows everyone else from Wales. Isn't that right butt?!
