A Trip to Vietnam – via Bristol!

Taking an audience on an emotional journey back to 1970’s Vietnam is no easy feat, but the phenomenal production of Miss Saigon currently on tour in the UK transports us there in the most thoroughly enchanting way. In eager anticipation for the show’s arrival at the...

TR2: Where it all Begins

As a Christmas treat, the fresh TRP Bloggers were taken on a tour of the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Production and Learning Centre, TR2. With a wander through the rehearsal spaces and a sneaky look around the costume and scenery workshops, it was a fantastic way to...

Burn the Mince Pies!

Over-indulging over Christmas has led to the inevitable love handles and general doughy appearance of my torso. Much of the exercise from the autumn has been successfully undone, and now it is time to address this issue with much haste. Tonight was out first night...

Un-Deck the Halls

So it wasn't quite Twelfth Night, but we decided that it was time to take our Christmas tree down. We've been away for most of the festive period, visiting friends and family across the country, so we have barely had any time to look at it this year anyway. But alas,...

Fantastic Clothes and Where Do I Find Them!?

We'd been putting it off for quite some time, as we are both great fans of the Harry Potter books and movies. My wife is encyclopaedic in her obsession with the books, having spent more of her formative years in Hogwarts than in the real world. Her knowledge of the...

The Year Ahead

New year, new start, new me... Nope! Last year was a pretty exceptional one for me, on the whole. I achieved more than I had planned, and ticked off some life goals along the way. I turned 30, I grew my business, I developed my creative skills. Oh, and I got married....

Loose Ends: The Lost Days of Late December

A light flurry of snow is falling outside, refusing to settle on the sodden ground. Meanwhile, our energetic border collie is wrestling with my in-laws' equally boisterous alsatian/labrador cross, both of whom are feeling trapped indoors thanks to the weather. At this...

Doodling All Day

“Mister Rivenberg! Will you please stop doodling and do some work! You’ll never get anywhere in life if you just sit there drawing all day!” My teachers always told me off for doodling. My workbooks would be littered with seemingly random scribbles of off-topic...

Nightbook

First, I will set the scene, as all good storytellers should. It is late on a Friday evening, but thanks to a shared case of the common cold we are laying in bed. My wife is already asleep in a cocoon of duvet nestled between two hot water bottles. She’s been snoozing...

Today, the River became an Ocean…

I don't consider myself to be a person that relies on routine. Instead, I see myself as a creature of habit. Perhaps distinguishing the two is an exercise in semantics, but the nuanced difference between the two is why I feel the need to clarify this point. Like most...
