Fashioning a Future


‘Can U Dig It?’ – Pop Will Eat Itself

Today, I had lunch with Larry at THE TUDOR ROSE to finally see him off.

We discussed ways in which I can get the FRANKENSTEIN project moving and maybe even look at ways of touring it.  He certainly has contacts at the Buxton Festival, so if nothing else that might be an option.  I also talked to him about ‘getting into’ comedy, maybe doing the character stuff I’ve been talking about with Flash.

Oh aye, Larry’s offered me a job as a lecturer/director to work (on his behalf) with his inherited theatre company.  He wants some fresh ideas injected into it.  That might kick off in August – and it sounds very good, too.

‘Welcome to the Terrordome’ – Public Enemy

I s’pose I might go up to Yorkshire this holiday, and make the most of it.  After all, I leave Tech in 7 weeks.  By that time, we’ll have done FRANKENSTEIN and might even be planning a little tour if we can make things work.  Then, once we’re into summer, I’ll move down to London and work for Larry.


Yorkshire then.  After all, it’ll be the last time that Flash and I’ll be together in this now five-year-old form of friendship.  After this, things are likely to become rather distant between us, with me leaving college and him going off to Oxford.


I hope we get a few good final ‘sessions’ together.  After all…  Gosh.  The Situation.  Me and him.  I think this’ll be it for us doing tapes and writing stuff together for a long time yet to come. 

Basically, when I leave Yorks. this time, Ritch and Flash will be all but at an end.  From here, we travel apart and in different directions.

And that’s no bullshit.
