Liverpool. Home of The Beatles. The Beatles Museum (yes of course there's a Beatles Museum) is literally a two minute walk from my semi-demi-luxury apartment's front door. Down in the resident's-only parking area I've noticed the numbers go from 24 to ... Read more >

[Wrote this a few weeks ago....]   So. Where are we? We're in Camberwell. Denmark Hill. Brixton. South East London. That area. Specifically Coldharbour Lane. Brilliant name. Is there a novel somewhere in Henry Pordes second-hand bookshop ... Read more >


THIRD TIME'S A CHARM (1)

It starts with a scream in a dream. And then it's suddenly not a dream. It's really real and it's across the road. I get up from this new bed. Open the curtains in this new room. In this new place. In this new chapter. Spanking new. I've been off the ... Read more >


VOULEZ DÉJÀ VU? 6

Tuesday, 15 Jul 2014 | Views [326] | Comments [3]

Phewski! The leaking of my missives onto his World Nomads page has been a plus. Judging by the comments, everyone just thinks it's some incredibly self-indulgent pastiche. So. No harm done. Nonetheless, I've moved again and am sending this with triple ... Read more >


VOULEZ DÉJÀ VU? 5

Friday, 11 Jul 2014 | Views [308] | Comments [1]

Well bugger me sideways. I don't know the How and I'm starting to be less sure about the Who, but somebody has planted a cyber-tracker in The Cloud and virtually knows my every virtual move. I'm livid.   Yet again, my last ... Read more >

Brilliant. Some finger-licking hackmeister infiltrated my emails and posted my encrypted message to you as a frickin blog entry. I'm never using Firewall-Free Fred's Internet Café services again. I should have flinched when I saw Nachos ... Read more >

It is with great excitement that I write to you, Ms Cress. The blogs are found.   I know. I know. I, too, was at my wit's end. When we never heard anything after just two blogs, I feared the worst. But as you know, hope is the one thing ... Read more >

You dream. You hope. You pray. You think it's over. That's it. It'll never happen again. You think it will never happen to you . Not again. That special moment. That special knowing . That this is good. That this is right . ... Read more >

LONDON CALLING 8

Saturday, 1 Oct 2011 | Views [559] | Comments [11]

One of the first things I see here in Leicester is a youngish man walking down the street, an open can of beer in one hand, an open packet of Skittles in the other, and a sly grin pushing up his left cheek. Knowingly taking the  famous ... Read more >

There's got to be a morning after If we can hold on through the night... We're all a bit tired. Although 'tired' isn't exactly the right word. Simone said it was a bit like “tears at the end of a party”. I think some boffin ... Read more >

Monday, 20 Dec 2010 | Views [521] | Comments [4]

30 th November, 2010 I'd had a wine. Apparently I failed to mention, in the last blog, the name of the piece in which I'm currently appearing. It's The Invisible Man , based on the HG Wells novel. There are a number of illusions ... Read more >

8 th November 2010 Funny how we manifest things we imagine. Here's a nice example: in my last blog I wrote “I've been here two weeks and two days and for some bizarre reason I'm not yet working on the West End in a marvellously witty ... Read more >

September 21, 2010 I've been here two weeks and two days and for some bizarre reason I'm not yet working on the West End in a marvellously witty comedy opposite Judi Dench and a tray of small cakes. I'm as shocked as you. I've done two hours ... Read more >

Tie Me Voulez Vous Down Sport 15

Tuesday, 21 Jul 2009 | Views [479] | Comments [7]

    I phone dead people.     Just before the Wednesday tech-run in Forli, Italy, I receive a text from Australia: “Oh my god maureen I can’t believe it”. Having seen Maureen several weeks ago in Oz and knowing she had a bit of a problemo on the ... Read more >

    And as this 3 year 7 month unblogged London escapade stumbles to the finish line, I glance back over my shoulder to see the track scattered with 9003 empty pint glasses, dog-eared theatre programs with my photo in them, used Eurostar tickets, ... Read more >


Tie Me Voulez Vous Down Sport 2

Thursday, 13 Nov 2008 | Views [505] | Comments [1]

    What’s in a name? A lot of consonants if you’re from Poland, but that’s beside the point and almost licking the neck of racism. So let’s quickly jump to paragraph the second.     We’re in the third week of rehearsals for Mamma Mia: The International ... Read more >

    It’s the day after Soho Pride, another day-long London Gay festival thing, when I get the call from my agent telling me I’ve got the job. I turn to the man on my bed, who I picked up at around three in the morning, and tell him I just got a job.... Read more >
