NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

“What Stirs the Spring” at The Old Red Lion

Last night I dragged the wife and kids along to The Old Red Lion Theatre Pub in Islington to see Obstacle Productions’ performance of “What Stirs the Spring” and we all had a terrific time. The intimate venue was almost full and we were treated to an exceptionally polished performance by Miles Barden and Joshua Dickinson. I always get a kick out of hearing something I’ve written myself being acted out (“After Michelangelo” in this case) – even if that is tempered by occasional thoughts of “Hmmm, that bit of writing needs tightening up a tad”. I also thought that Oscar Windsor-Smith’s piece “Timelock” was fantastic, and those two old pros Poe and Jacobs came out of it pretty well, too.

    Best name for a theater ever. I can’t imagine how cool it would be to have something I did made into a play or film. Though I do harbor fantasies of having a short story made into a Hong Kong movie ; )

    You’ll do it one day, Natalie. Although I shudder to think of the plotline :)
