Maybe everywhere we go on tour, we’ll be able to find one of these ‘You Are Here’ maps, perhaps that’s a treasure hunt style challenge we ought to set ourselves. This one’s in Newcastle, where we had the biggest audience so far. Lots of laughter in all the right places, and lots of the poignant poetry noise that audiences make at a moment of recognition. It’s a cross bewteen ‘ohh’, ‘mmm’, ‘ahh’ and ‘Yes! That’s absolutely IT!’

Chipping Norton theatre (a converted Salvation Army hall, and one of the cutest theatres I’ve ever seen) runsĀ a series called ‘Wild Nights’ where audiences pay what they think the show deserved. There was lots of paper money in the bucket at the end of our show there in January, thankfully – no buttons or holiday currency! There was a dressing room debate about which poet wrote a poem called ‘Wild Nights’ – think you know the answer? Guess here.
