Hall People and the Mona Lisa: Tuesday 22nd February

There was another grammatical gem from one of my fellow classmates today, as he informed the rest of the class that he often got documents from hall people. This conjured up images of a bitter and resentful race, lurking somewhere between the utility room and the downstairs toilets, and whose only aim in life was to serve our bureaucratic needs whilst plotting our very demise. Or perhaps this was just me, at any rate I had obviously drifted off into a daydream of such a collective, as when the teacher asked me which famous artist had painted the Mona Lisa I told her that it was hung in the Louvre. I blame those damn hall people.

The world is a stage, again!

Tonight we had the Tech run for ‘Picasso’, which like all Tech runs involved a lot of mooching around; unlike most Tech Runs however, we actually managed to get most of a run done. Ebisu Echo Theatre is a really good space, the set looks terrific, and I finally have a tie and cufflinks. Things are definitely starting to come together; I didn’t even get any notes tonight, although that was probably because we had run out of time, and not due to the fact that I have any ability what-so-ever.
