One Hand Clapping - Tour

So, here goes. The first House of Orphans blog.

One Hand Clapping - the novelAfter our mini tour to the Octagon in Bolton and to the Martin Harris Centre which is part of Manchester University, the 'One Hand Clapping' tour bus (there is no tour bus) is off to London.

It's been an eventful year for the show. We said goodbye to Adam Urey who was half-inched to perform in Bantams which had a successful tour of the NW and said a warm, welcome to our new Redvers Glass / Laddie O'Neill, Ethan Holmes.

With less than two weeks rehearsals, Ethan really worked hard and became an integral part of the team which includes Eve Burley (Janet Shirley), Oliver Devoti (Howard Shirley) and the wunder-techs, Owen Rafferty, Meriel Pym and Alex Carvahlo. 

Ethan Holmes as Red in rehearsalWe also said a warm hello to our co-producer, Richard Hall - which reminds me - Richard, your cheque's in the post!


I spent this weekend doing mail outs, marketing and press releases for the London dates of 'One Hand Clapping'. It took an age but I'm hoping it's all worth it. I've already had a few replies from producing theatres and one reply about Edinburgh 2015 so, although it can sometimes feel like one is throwing well-considered words into the wind off of a very high, very unforgiving mountain-top covered in mist with nothing below but the endless abyss of nothingness, people do read emails and sometimes, they even respond.

We're excited about visiting The Cockpit. I actually first performed here many years ago as a first year BA (Hons) Acting student at Middlesex University (don't try and look it up, the course disbanded after we graduated. Sigh.), which meant I spent my first Christmas in 1996 away from home. It was a cheery play, too. Something about The Holocaust. But I did remember the space being lovely to work in and we were made to feel welcome.

More recently, I returned there this summer with my good pal and collaborator, composer Michael Betteridge with the first 40 minutes of a new opera, 'Zoe Trope' which was part of the Rough Opera event. I was reminded of the space and I knew One Hand Clapping would work well there.

If you can make it, come and support us from 9-11 December. Tickets are bookable through The Cockpit website.

Join us in the bar afterward for a Gluwein, too. I hope they serve Gluwein... 'Phteven?' (There is no Phteven). 'Be a dear and find out if they serve Gluwein.'

联通流量银行官网?找老杨好啦 买流量 迷人 非常迷人的。 大家的对象是错乱的,世界却是渺茫的。大致上一般是先苦后甜。从来没有轻快的拥有。不过人必然走相反道路。表明了一种迹象:人类悲苦 画地为狱最后带来你商业的失败。做人的失败。 红度广告 老杨红度点击访问量广告,听说过吧?你知道吗?赫赫有名的。名声大是有道理的。想知道吗,出类拔萃,是代价的付出。 大兄弟你,在网络上混,落荒而逃,对你恰是互联网是铜城铁壁,根本没有未来。不过,实际情况是刚巧相反,网上是黄金遍地,只因为你鲁鱼亥豕,而无缘。你就晓得阿里巴巴,却四处碰壁。要得锦衣玉食的生活,你得有火眼金睛,别把金沙错看河沙。 你找的正在此处。 红度点击访问广告
