Spent the last 2 days working on a body of work that brings together the past 6 months of thinking. Over the past 5 days Radio 4 Book of the week has provided a series of profound moments throughout the week - John Berger - And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08l78gf#play Whilst listening I've been mainly in a heightened emotional state but today it was tears throughout the last episode and from 9:03 onwards it was so truly heart wrenching that I felt turned inside out - with you I can imagine a place where phosphate of calcium is enough....................

Tommy at The Wolsey https://www.wolseytheatre.co.uk/shows/tommy/ in Ipswich provided a jaunting rethink of what you thought you knew of the jaunty 'sing along' musical. It really was a wonderfully demanding, eye opening, dazzling evening at the theatre - 'he's a deaf, dumb and blind kid!' - think about it, what more could it be than challenging and then there is the addition of the fiddler!
