    Reading this thread is the first time I’ve laughed since last night.

    Try looking down in the shower if you want a real laugh.

    Something funny about the way your mum looks up and says "Please?"

    Ah, Scara's fallen for the old "Chich's Mum / Chich dressed as his mum" switcheroo.

    The is yet another rewrite as I am now making the character gay. I have spoken to a couple of people about the play and though I felt some resistance to my ideas, I do understand that no great art was ever produced the easy way.

    Struggles is part of all great artists lives.

    One thing also is that we went to see The Death of A Salesman at the young vic, my first time there actually got to say the most uncomfortable seats. But what I loved about it was how they made use of the space and the actors spoke some of the lines from the aisles. They did this to convey space and distance in the relationships of the characters.

    As the main character in the stalkers guide to ice cream has a poor relationship with his father something I may explore more as I am now making him gay. I think it would be great to make the father say all his lines from the back of the room. It may throw the audience off but so be it.

    If I could get to a proper big theatre I would love to the fathers character actually hanging above the stage in a box, it would symbolise the boxes we all put ourselves in when we do not open our minds(I also know a fetish club where the is such a cage that hangs from the ceiling that could work as well)

    All sorts of awesome options. Could be a heckler (even seated in the stalls) that the audience finds out is the father.

    I am having quite a lot of trouble getting anywhere to put on my production. I ask and ask, most places say you have to hand in a script first so they can tell your serious and then you need to prove you have a cast and the necessary funds to put on a production.

    Dont know how Shakespeare put up with it all.

    Chich, I’m over at Christmas and liking for something decent to watch in London . Assuming your masterpiece isn’t ready can you recommend anything?

    The Ian Mckellen one man show looks good but do you know if there’s any good smaller plays?

    Bit far out mate. Mine wont be ready.

    We are pretty much just going to the national in the autumn, might be quite a left leaning place but it is also a sure sign of quality any play that comes out from there.

    Death of a Salesman will still be running then and having seen it before moving to the west end it is stunning. The man in the white suit looks quite good as well.

    Of course Only fools is still running I have not seen it yet but I imagine it will be a great evening out.

    So I had a meeting yesterday with the chaps and they most definitely are chaps who run the theatre.

    I have done quite a lot of soul searching over this and it's changed in tone quite a bit, the is now a more state of the nation feel to it and has a new sub plot which would make it quite a good heist story.

    Also the title will be changed to the oddball guide to choosing cake, this is to reflect a more romantic tone.
