RIP Graham Chapman

7am

My No.1: ‘The Sensual World’ by Kate Bush


Betty just rang.  She, Freddie and Chip are safely arrived at Gatport Airwick.

But on a very sad note, Graham Chapman of Monty Python has died of cancer. 
 
 
This isn’t good.  And I feel deeply sad about it.

Later:

10.50pm

‘Don’t Let Me Down, Gently’ – The Wonder Stuff


And so, today, DPA2 were introduced to the Berkoff style of acting in MP rehearsals.  The reaction was mixed.  Ken’s blocking any progress as usual.  So is Daniel, but he has his own, more complex reasons, and I must concede that they have a certain legitimacy.  But for most of the cast it has proven to be a damned good test of stamina and focus.  I hope it works…




I talked to Kat today and says Willock would like us all to be friends again.  She says he has fond memories of me and hopes we can work something out.  I made a point of acknowledging him when I saw him across the Refectory later on (he’s visiting Kat this week).
