Three special memories off the top of my head:
1. A show that took place in Frances Bell’s kitchen – was it Small Space?? about a couple and their life together and one has a terminal illness. It was a wonderful as a show, but also I think it was the first “alt space” show in theatrefest “venue X”
2. After festival drinks in the Queen’s Theatre bar when everyone congregates – was the year Phoebe was doing the vox box with her young producers, (where you had to put a makeshift photobooth/box on your head and record yourself talking about a show/festival).
Mark Ashmore was having a go, and the Queen’s bar staff needed to pack up, clear us out etc. So we all sneaked out leaving Mark talking to himself in an empty bar. Was quite a funny little event, with actors, volunteers, techies, Queen’s staff etc all having a laugh together (at Mark’s expense!) There’ll def be a video of this from Mark’s perspective somewhere [see below!] – possibly someone might have one from the rest of the rabble.
3. Margaret Nathanson showing up with bags full of M&S goodies to keep the volunteers fuelled and happy 😊
