That teacher

June 17, 2013

I started at The Maynard in 2003. I remember it being that year because at the time Devon and its educational system were going through a rather strange 'Middle School' phase; before starting, my parents sent me to purgatory transitional school for four years where I took my SATS and learned to write joined up.

Let's get physical…

We have split calls every day for Mad World My Masters and Titus Andronicus and so when we're not needed in one rehearsal room we move across to the other.

'It's not even swan shaped'

I always find it difficult writing these sorts of things without setting up a similar prefix to that of: 'what did you do over your summer holiday?' I feel infantile, silly and suddenly very aware of my feet. I suppose it doesn't have to be Shakespeare…
