almost Cupid at the Old Vic...

What a pleasant coincidence...

After blogging about the Old Vic, I've been offered a play-reading of a new adaptation of Ovid's "Metamorphosis". It's part of the Old Vic - New Voices programme and will be shown to the board of the Old Vic with an option to be performed on the Old Vic Stage sometime next year... How exciting!

Amongst others I get to play Actaeon, The God of The Underworld -muahahaha- and ironically Cupid.

Credit must go to the wonderful Emily Randall who recommended me (thank you very much) just from working along side me at Theatre 503.

And while we're at it, thank you also to Jamie McLachlin (whose Spotlight page I can't find). He got me a part in a short film we will be shooting in two weeks. More info about that when I get to it.

-------Amendment--------

They've decided to cut the story of Pygmalion... Hence Cupid and Venus are no more! *ROFL* Well, as much as I will miss that bit of the script, it makes more sense in reality... (and that picture of me as a naked winged minor was starting to disturb me a bit).

Hey Sweetheart,
good to have you in my feedreader again...
May I ask how much the Old Vic-people pay you for each time you mention the Old Vic? ;-)
