It’s very important, trust … and a measure of the complete faith I have in the cast of On the Bridge is that I am able to take a holiday (my first in four years) during the run up to the world premiere.

The truth is, I think we are ready now … apart from the small matter of lines being learned!
So I have been sorting out some practicalities, including a rather fine programme, quirky music, and lighting cues.

Safe in the knowledge that we will have the chance of two or three runthroughs before the first of our four performances takes place on November 2, watched by Natassa, who wrote this wonderful play.

So, one more rehearsal tonight, then holiday here I come! :-)
