theatre, film & tv past and present 2001-2008 & 2013…
We’ve all been there. A friend has written, or directed, or has a role in a new production. You’ve been to see it and now you wish you hadn’t. It was so terrible you could hardly bear to sit through to the end. So, what should you say afterwards in the dressing room or down the pub? The question is: how do we talk about shows we don’t like, to people we do? Are there better, more honest and constructive ways to go about it?
It’s such a tricky situation that I’m interested to know how you…

Not just a blog, a philosophy

Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

This hit home with me. One of my best friend’s sons appeared in many very small venues. Sometimes the platys were very good, and he was bad, or sometimes he was quite good, in a very bad play. We always tried to see anything he was in, heading off with a loyal group of family and friends who filled most of the seats. But there were times when I had to have a ‘serious talk’ about his choices of parts. I would dress it up as ‘being concerned about typecasting’, or ‘Do you really think you are suited to comedy’. But it wasn’t easy to be blunt. Fortunately, he quit the stage, and now manages a restaurant. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
I believe it should be someone in the business who tells these aspiring actors. Then again, one woman’s meat is another woman’s poison!
