The National Theatre Archive has made available to me a recording of my Platform in March to launch Slim Chances. Two cameras were lurking in the upper reaches of the Cottesloe as I performed ‘in the round’ to a full house.
Was it in the attic that I bumped the back of my head? The evidence should have been covered with make-up, but I had no dresser to check me front and back before I went on in improvisatory mode at six o’clock … onto the set of The Holy Rosenbergs due to be performed that night – a living room in Edgware, North West London.
Here is an excerpt or two from the forty-five minute Platform. (As the volume is slightly challenged, the video might best be heard through earphones or external speakers.)
I would just like to say in closing that I read all your comments each week and find them touching and encouraging by turns.
Just a reminder that signed copies of Slim Chances are available from Edward’s website along with a limited-edition pack of postcards and greeting cards produced for his Burgh House exhibition.
