Two shows in
So we've just had our opening weekend and man alive, what an experience! This first show I was absolutely shitting it. I did the biggest nervous poo ever. And yeah, it went alright! But the SECOND show! Wowza, that shit was off da chain! Despite almost decking it on stage and falling off my chair, … Continue reading Two shows in
IT’S ALMOST TIME
Fucking hell. Where's Bernard's Watch when you need it?! So I've been ridiculously busy this past week. Far too busy to blog, which upsets me dearly. How will people know what I'm thinking? HOW HAVE YOU ALL COPED?! Well this is mainly what I've been thinking: FUCK FUCK FUCK OH FUCK WHAT IS GOING ON … Continue reading IT’S ALMOST TIME
In one of the scenes, I do an impression of my husband cry-maxing For those uncool kids who don't know what that is (I had to look it up), it's when as you climax and orgasm, you also start to cry. Hence, the mash-up name cry-max. I never encountered a partner who cry-maxed. As a woman who … Continue reading Cry-maxing
What a week!
Fucking hell. What a week. It's been 6 days since the preview and I'm only now getting back to normal. Oh man, one thing I did not account for was how much it was going to take out of me. I was exhausted! All this adrenaline, nerves and energy beforehand, then zooompch. It was like I … Continue reading What a week!
It all began tonight So tonight is preview night. I'm excited. I've been doing all the nervous pooing. Like, all the nervous pooing. I'm calming myself down by making props for the show.

WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!
So, after yesterday's frustrating rehearsals leaving me wanting to cry and have a bath and drink lots of wine and cry some more, today's was absolutely amazing. I'm so pumped up! Let's go team, let's go! I need to remember that I love acting, and I need to enjoy these rehearsals and not get myself pure stressed … Continue reading WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE!
Today was a frustrating day at rehearsals. I don't know what it was, but I just wasn't getting it. And it's not like it was mad hard stuff like spit some Shakespeare in an avant garde style whilst interpreting Chekov through use of masks. It was just...stand up here, move your arm there. Do it … Continue reading Frustration
(Said in style of SHAKIRA, SHAKIRA) Rehearsals are well and truly underway for In Utero and fuck me, I'm shattered. But I'm loving it! Look at the venue we're rehearsing in. Look at it! Look at it. Isn't it beautiful?! I feel like a queen! Massive cheers to Fettes College, you are stars. Aye, rehearsals. They are going … Continue reading Rehearsals rehearsals
