One Response to “My journalism”

  1. Filter’s “Twelth Night” sounds like a blast. I saw there take on Chekhov’s “Three Sisters” and it was awesome. I freely admit I only went because Romola Garai was in it but I came away inspired and enthusing vociferously about “lifelong frustration, unrequited love and parting with no hope of reunion” and the comforting realisation that others peoples lives can be as ceap as your own. It was a totally funky production, Romola draped over a chaise longue with 70’s Bad Company Classic Rock blasting over the PA, talk about putting ones eggs in one basket, marvellous !.
