Thank you, Tim Crouch. I was happy to be there from the first moment I sat down and realized that I hadn’t been on stage in a black box theatre in a very, very long time. I was instantly reminded of the thrill and terror of not knowing what you’re going to do but also aware of all the promise that magic space can hold if you stumble along in the right direction. Tim provided that direction. I felt like I was part of French painting made up of little dots – like those by Georges Seurat. I was busy making little spots of color where directed and discovered what the bigger picture was about around the same time the audience did. We were surprised! Which is a rare and wonderful gift. So, thanks for that!
