Lovely reactions from writing friends and other audience members who’ve caught the play. Particularly pleasing to introduce folk to M’Connachie who has been a passion of Carol Metcalf’s for some time. (Hope you don’t mind me revealing that, Carol)
An alter ego as the catch-all escape from responsibility isn’t a new thing – think of Jekyll and Hyde – but it is an interesting one. There was so much going on in Barrie’s head, maybe he would have enjoyed the luxury I did when I separated them.
Arbroath next Friday at The Webster Memorial Theatre, 01241 435 800. Really not too far from Barrie’s home at Kirriemuir.
