I am treading the boards in the Backstage production of “Prelude to a Kiss”

The Kissers
What am I up to at the moment? You might well ask. And you should because as you know even if I am not blogging I am up to something. That makes me sound like I have adventures or get up to no good, and you all know that is about as far from me as it is possible to be. I do like the notion though. In line with being a dare devil adventurer (yeah right) I decided to take a bravery pill and audition for a play. Yes, for the first time in 20 odd years I am going on stage.

Promo “Unveiling” by Vaclav Havel - a comedy of social discomfort. DDG's Friends and other Strangers

A social visit between good friends?

A couple of months ago when I heard what the companion piece would be for our show I drew a blank. I would. I am a complete philistine. Now before you judge me too harshly, I do think that I have done a brilliant job of catching up from a wasted youth that consisted of a literary diet of mostly trashy romance novels.

Bloody brilliant Actors - Toby Masson and Sanjeev Dixit
About a year ago I was up to my eyeballs in rehearsals with Toby Masson for “The Evils of Tobacco” for the Dubai Drama Groups short Play evening “ Chekhov’s Cigarette”. Last month we heard that “Chekhov’s Cigarette” had been shortlisted for the Dubai Timeout Nightlife awards in the Best Theatrical Performance category. I have already harped on about this but hey that will not stop me from doing so again in an effort to entice you into coming and seeing our next endeavor together.
