Ah, nothing like a spot of good news to get you over the midweek hump...
I am absolutely thrilled to announced that Lyndall Grant from fight co-ordinators RC-Annie is going to be helping us out with The Deep Space!
Without giving too much away, there are a couple of moments of physical drama in the play that I knew would require some outside expertise, and Lyndall has very kindly stepped in to help us out.
I first met the RC-Annie gang while training at Central, Rachel Bown-Williams and Lyndall Grant spent several weeks taking us through the basics of unarmed combat, rapier and dagger work before releasing us on the examination board.
I had an absolute ball under their tutelage and managed to wangle myself a gold in Stage Combat BADC Level 1 with the help of my most marvellous scene partner Grant Leat - though goodness knows what Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant would have thought if they'd seen our interpretation of The Philadelphia Story...
If you want to find out more about RC-Annie and it's excellent work in film, TV and theatre go visit their website at www.rc-annie.com.
And, just because I can never resist a spot of Katherine Hepburn, here's a little bit of The Philadelphia Story for your viewing pleasure...
