One small step for technophobe kind!

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Drama in the community ! Where I will tell you my thoughts and goings on ( aren't you lucky!) and generally comment on everything that is happening within this module and some little extras about my life outside of the module , if you play your cards right!

So on friday I went along to the comedy night in the theatre , where we were to be entertained by comedians from the school of comedy in camden . I thoroughly enjoyed the night but some did appeal to me more than others. All in all the night was a success and I hope it is the first of many more comedy nights at uni and after that in true student style we went the s.u to see a d.j called shai fx which I spent most of the night calling him chai tea! On Saturday I ventured down to the Mary Wallace theatre , which is a little theatre in Twickenham hidden away by the Barmy arms. My good friend Bonnie was staring in a play called Iron by Rona Munro . The play attempted to pull heavy on the heartstrings with it's strained relationship through a mother and a daughter , but lack of movement on stage meant it was easy for the audience to become disengaged. But Bonnie was great and it was great to go to a theatre I had new been to do let alone never knew exisited.
My weekend of entertainment didn't end there on saturday evening me , kate , sammy and fellow drama in the community fiend rachel went to the smarts festival . It had a great laid back feel and we just sat and sipped cider like ladies and listened to the music. Next on my theatrical agenda was to go and see ' Popcorn' at uni which was a piece being directed by ex drama student , matt stenning . The play itself really surprised me and the time flew by , so well done to matt and the second years !


  1. Well done for getting started busy Jen. Great to have packed so much into the first weekend of term. The first blog is always the hardest, but you're already finding your voice. How do Ladies sip cider? Do Gentlemen do it in a different way?

  2. ladies do it in a ladylike manner of course , with a straw! has two pints of lager taught us nothing!

  3. I thought it was ladylike to not drink cider at all.
