25 Feb Role playing and future plans
Today we were all back at the Bridge Youth Club, after some of the group being at PIAW at Leatherhead Theatre last week.
We had no visitors, and those not there were Anthony O’Sullivan, who was unwell, and Viv.
We started with Brandon welcoming everyone back after last week. Then Luke H and others told us about what they did last week: in the morning, an alternative version of Your Call, and in the afternoon some comedy sketches, with various comic characters. They said it was great fun.
Then I, with some help, talked about the PIAW of Rainbow’s End, that we performed last week at Leatherhead Theatre. We said it was enjoyable, but we were tired.
Next Brandon told us that the Monday youth group are looking at a play called Phone Call which, like Your Call, starts in a call centre.
After that, we discussed future Freewheeler plans. These included Your Call at Leatherhead Theatre in April, Steep Rain again, a play about audio description, and ones about War of the Words, and Yes, Prime Minister. There is also Terri’s play on disability awareness, and my Lord Upright and Grovling. Terri then performed from the play A Cream Cracker Under the Settee, by Alan Bennett. Terri also told us that quite often doctors speak to her carer, when she goes for an appointment, and not her. Others said the same.
We then had lunch.
In the afternoon, Sam performed the play Imaginary Friends by Alan Ayckbourn. We finished off splitting into groups of four, pretending to be different characters in various time periods in different situations. I was with Dan, Jamie and Soufyan: Dan was someone who liked science, Jamie a politician, Soufyan was a ship’s Captain, and myself an annoying Lord-General who is left on an island. He was so annoying.
In conclusion I enjoyed it today and I hope the rest did as well.
