Last Saturday, the group I make films with did its part for the Tsunami Fund by staging two shows of The Real Inspector Hound at the Library Theatre in Birmingham City Centre. The producer and director James Eaves did a magnificent job of organising everything and getting everything - and I mean everything: theatre hire, sets, actors and the rest - for free so that pretty much the entire gate could be sent onto the fund. Regrettably, starting my new job meant that I only had the time to act as prompt rather than as stage manager, but at least I helped. Wonder what we'll get up to next? Looks like we might finally finish shooting Bernadette's Crucible around Easter. I think we've all learnt that filming solely on weekends is not the way to go.
