I've decided this year that I either try and watch a piece of theatre a week or read a play a week.
It's going well so far - I've read a few plays and watched some theatre. (See my side bar for lists if you're interested.)
This week I'm reading a play called 'Shopping and F**king.' I'm reading it because I've heard so much about it and well, it's a bit full on, not really my cup of tea - but I'm almost halfway through and I'll stick with it.
I love theatre.
Went to a fringe theatre debate on Saturday, chaired by people I really admire. I did feel at one point feel that I was sat in a room full of writers moaning. I didn't learn anything from going - but it's always good hearing what everyone else thinks and I wished at the end I'd put my hand up and said that I love the theatre/fringe scene in Manchester. It's supportive and there are so many great things going on in this city. Long may it continue!
