Here we go. Tomorrow is the big day. Dress rehearsal from 3pm. Unsuspecting members of the public due at 7.30. Thanks to the friendly gang at the Old Red Lion and a very undemanding set of technical specifications from a smart if unadventurous director I’ve got all my lighting and sound cues programmed in today. The computer did crash just the once, but we tried turning it off and on again and that seemed to work. Full steam ahead. There was a terrible moment this morning when I found that both my local tube stations were shut due to a “passenger incident” – how the **** was I going to get to Angel on time? Worked it out of course, cursing the poor soul who’d thrown himself onto the tube tracks. What a desperate and horrible way to go. I hope the staff at Finchley Road who witnessed it are ok.
