Storm clouds

This tour of HORRIBLE HISTORIES certainly hasn’t stopped being interesting! Today it was nature’s turn to kick-start the fun. Half an hour after the arrival of storm clouds over Oxford, cascades of water started pouring into the back of the theatre. When I arrived at the half, it had already flooded the dressing room corridors and was creeping onto the stage. Quick action by the theatre staff using a hoover – and the abatement of the storm – meant that after a wait of 45 minutes, the audience were able to enjoy their matinee performance. And there was ample opportunity to ad-lib about the strange afternoon!

    Now that you have taken Oxford by storm, I think that the next logical step is Broadway! American fans of BSC are eagerly awaiting the sight of Neal Foster in doublet and hose. It wouldn’t be a wash out!

    I’m not sure America is ready for Foster in doublet, let alone hose, but he will do his best to get across the water as soon as possible!
