Arthur's Seat. We took a picnic up there last week and watched the sunset :)
So this is a little check in, I'm still in Edinburgh, still in a little bubble away from the real world. It's so bizarre, whilst people were rioting in London and other cities Edinburgh was just blissfully unaware, or so it seemed. It honestly took about 3 days for news of the outside world to reach me. I still don't really understand what happened or why, it's probably one of those things that is hard to get your head around after it's happened, but I hope everyone in the affected areas is ok.
Meanwhile, up in good old Scotland (rainy as ever, of course) I've basically been in a routine of: get up, eat, go out and hand out flyers, eat, do the show, drink & eat, sleep. Obviously fuelled with much caffeine! It's fun, but exhausting and repetitive, not to mention cramped. The play is still going well, we've had a couple of good reviews, one from ThreeWeeks which I'm really happy about. We think the Scotsman was in last night too so fingers crossed for a good review from them! Also, the playwright, David Greig came to see it the other night because he has two other shows on here at the moment. Obviously we were all really nervous and excited because the play is so great we wanted to do it justice. Thankfully the audience was full and they were really enjoying it and the cast were all brilliant, probably because they had so much nervous energy! After the show we went down to the bar and he bought us all a drink and stayed chatting with us for quite a while and told us how much he enjoyed it! We were all so pleased, if we've impressed David Greig then we're happy! Just waiting for some more reviews to come out now, and in the meantime trying to get audiences in!
My mum is visiting next week, which is exciting! I'm trying to write a list of all the things she should see because there's so much to choose from! I'm hoping we get time to do a bit of shopping too because Edinburgh has sooo many great shops, but I haven't had a chance to go anywhere yet.
Anyway, I better go now. Thanks for reading, sorry it's not very interesting at the moment!
