Well it’s just under a week till my first Edinburgh show, which is Fatal Distraction, 7.10 at the Pleasance Dome tickets available now, just in case you didn’t know.
My current schedule is like this, tomorrow morning, all my props go up to Edinburgh. There are a lot of them, there’s a big set, there are lots of boxes. I have lots still to sort through and pack. On Monday I get the train up to Edinburgh and arrive around 12ish, this gives me an hour to get across town and go into my venue to tech the show, set up the set, make sure it’s all going to work, plot the fancy fancy lights and try work out how we’re going to set the show up and pack it down in under 20 minutes every day. Then I have a day off before starting the first official show, which is a preview. So it’s all a bit stressy at the moment.
My last London preview went well, but the show isn’t quite there yet. It’s one of those shows that’ll really bed in by performing it night after night, all the little nuances I forget will hammer home and become second nature. This is the part of Edinburgh I hate. I know after a week of shows it’ll be brilliant, I just want it to be brilliant now.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
