So, with two weeks to work it up, The Three Belles and I signed off the new incarnation of “Sing Sing Sing” on Sunday!
This came during a weekend which included a fantastic Saturday night at The King Street Tavern, where the Belles did their magic to a packed, raucous house.
I’d had my head down on the script all day, ironing out minor problems and reworking some of the scenes from early morning, then turned up (flagging a little from not seeing the light of day!) at the pub to have it reconfirmed why I love working with these women. Brilliant is the word.
Back home, rather unsteady on my feet after a good few beers, then a quick review of the script with Anneka on Sunday morning – and boom – done. Great feeling sending it off, getting their minor edits back and then it was finished.
It’s a funny old thing. The work has been intense in a short time on this script and it leaves a bit of a hole for me to fill. That thing that happens when suddenly the close intense thinking you were doing comes to a halt. But then, I’m excited about seeing it come to life.
Rehearsals, here we come!
