It's only a matter of days until the UK is scheduled to depart the European Union. As anyone who follows me knows, Brexit is an outcome I've been fighting, marching and campaigning against since David Cameron first announced the date for the 2016 referendum.
One of the reasons I love chairing post-show Q&As so much is the chance I get to learn new things from incredibly talented and knowledgeable panellists. Last night's event for Jean Anouilh's play The Orchestra at Omnibus Theatre was a special treat as the expert on hand was also an old friend, Jeremey Sams.
Charming, delectable, delicious. And those are just the custard creams... It's not often I get offered biscuits at the post-show Q&As I chair, but at a show called The Ministry of Biscuits, it would have seemed remiss not to.
I've been following the insanely talented improv geniuses of The Showstoppers for most of their eleven years. How do they do it? I still can't really fathom it, but I was pleased to gain a few more insights - and a new well of admiration - after chairing a post-show Q&A with them this week.
I started this past weekend in a room full of wonderful, talented and inspiring women (and some great male allies) at London's Tristan Bates Theatre chairing a BOSSY all-female panel after a performance of Robert Luxford's Nuns.
In the second of my back-to-back post-show Q&As at the King's Head Theatre this past week, I was at the Off-West End powerhouse's original home in Islington for Atticist's first London revival of David Greig's 2002 play Outlying Islands.
In the first of my two back-to-back King's Head Theatre post-show Q&As, I was at Trafalgar Studios for the West End premiere of Kevin Elyot's first play, Coming Clean, 37 years after the actor-turned-writer made his playwriting debut with it at London's Bush Theatre.
How does it feel to have a one-woman show written especially for you by one of your country's leading writers? Pretty damn good, according to Songs for Nobodies' Bernadette Robinson - though, to be clear, there was nothing passive about this privilege in her case.
My final post-show Q&A of the year, to the stage premiere of Chasing Bono, was an absolute Irish corker! After a revealing discussion about the fine line between success and failure and the perils of fame, it ended with an impromptu song performance. Could someone in stage management get us a guitar at Soho Theatre?
