We had a week off last week, and yesterday was our first day back. We are at Hedingham Castle in Essex. It’s weird being back after a break.
Cannizaro was a one off. We turned up at about four o'clock in the afternoon, encountered the venue for the first time, for the evening show.
The tour has been completely all consuming. I have no sense of what day of the week it is. I haven’t read a newspaper or watched the television or listened to the radio since the tour started. We just keep pootling along, in a sort of touring cocoon.
Today, for the show at the Globe, the weather was overcast; it is an English summer so it’s not very warm. It hasn’t rained, thank God. It was pretty perfect actually.
