Warming Up for My Kill Show
Seven days to showtime in Kill, and everything's simmering nicely.
Seven days to go until my Kill show, on Thursday 23 February, and all is calm and steady. I've stopped coming up with Kill puns and I'm rehearsing away.
I went to Gealach Gorm Theatre in Kill this day last week to rehearse. Angela Mulcahy set up this theatre almost entirely off her own bat.
She's a one-woman band, keeping the theatre running throughout the year, and she's built a loyal audience for the shows she puts on.
Visiting Gealach Gorm Theatre
James Power, my theatre guru, Andrew Dunphy, my lighting guru, and I had a good look around the theatre. Andrew fiddled with the lights. I walked up and down the stage. James decided where the chair would go and what way I would come in.
Angela found a lovely green chair, but sadly, I forgot to take pictures of it, or indeed any other pictures of this lovely theatre. The marketing gurus would be very cross with me.
You'll have to make do with this picture of the lovely red seats that the audience will be sitting. I'll have loads of lovely pictures for you after next week's show, I promise
Promotional Train Keeps Rolling
I'm keeping up with my promotional schedule too. Stories about People Wipe Me should be appearing in local papers this week, just in time for the show. And posters are going up around Tramore and Kill, and even Waterford.
These posters designed by Royce Design, run by the lovely and loyal Roisin Royce, who has been with me all the way through my People Wipe Me quest.
Here’s my People Wipe Me poster, in its purple and yellow colour scheme, with the words Last Chance to See written on it. The poster tells you that my show is on Thursday 23 February at 8pm in Kill and contains the booking link.
And I'm also telling people about the show, which is the simplest and most effective way to get bums on seats. In the meantime, I'm distracting myself by MCing at spoken word events like Speak Up, which is happening tomorrow night in Tramore.
So, in the spirit of telling people, here's a handy link to book your People Wipe Me tickets. That should appease the marketing gods.
