My No.1: ‘Don’t Drop Bombs’ by Liza Minnelli
Johnny’s motorbike has been stolen.
Jamie Davenport tells me he has a bit of a crush on Julian.
‘The Shadow of Love’ – The Damned
The MP costumes are period/naturalistic and this is to provide an anchor to audiences that might be expecting something a little more traditional. But they also look rather alienating when set against the ideas we have for the set and the make-up.
The make-up’s going to be white painted masks for all the characters except Fanny (an outsider). Her make-up will be equally painty, but not quite as much. The set will be a parody of Regency living quarters, with paint oozing from the panelling. We are also hoping to have a painted landscape, in unnatural colours, alien-looking, outside the French windows, ensuring anyone watching knows this is not your usual bit of Austen.
