Summer holidays can’t last forever (sadly)

The student that I am had such high hopes for this summer – get a job nice and quickly, work lots then have plenty of money for travels and shopping.  But of course that didn’t happen.  I got all the jobs in the last couple of weeks plus lots of shifts at the theatre so haven’t had any money until now.  Which meant that last week I was able to take some well deserved time off and head up north to see the Bearded One and chill out before my final year at uni begins.

First shoot (in a long time…)

On Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to the dress rehearsal of Makeshift Wings Theatre Company‘s dress rehearsal for their first ever production Connect Four.  The play is written by Amy Bethan Evans who is also the company’s producer and it is a wonderful play.  Audience feedback so far has been nothing but positive and press night was tonight so the reviews will be out soon as well!

I must extend my thanks once again to Amy and the company as a whole for letting me invade their last run before the doors opened!  It can be really difficult to get groups to agree to an amateur photographer with no real portfolio to come in and shot them, but hopefully they are happy with the shots I took and they can come in handy in the future for them.

Connect Four is running at the Bierkeller Theatre in Bristol until May 9th.  Makeshift wings can be found on Facebook or follow them on twitter @mshiftwings
