As those of you who read this page regularly will know, I often play guitar in various local and regional productions. This last week, I have been performing in a specially licensed version of Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds. Don’t for a moment confuse this with the official production that has been touring arenas around the country. To find out more about that, click here. This was a smaller, dramatic presentation staged by The Hertfordshire Players and performed at the open-air Minack Theatre in Cornwall.
It was great to perform to sold-out audiences of 800 every show, even if the wet weather gave us some problems, and indeed forced the cancellation of our opening night.
The dramatic picture above was taken by the official Minack photographer during the show. To see more, click here then click on the images themselves to see higher resolution versions. The other is a picture of me looking confused at soundcheck taken by my friend Zoe Watkins.
My thanks to everyone who came to see the show and to the whole cast and crew for making it an unforgettable experience. Finally, a big hello and welcome to anyone visiting this site for the first time having seen the web address in the show programme on my page about the real science of Mars.
