Preparing for Post-Break Productions and a Glimpse of Glasgow

My time at Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland has come to an end. I thoroughly enjoyed working with PSS; a fabulous organization run by fabulous people. I finished there on Thursday. This weekend I’ve been trying to wrap up as much homework and preparation as I can before going into the three show mania that awaits me after the break; King Lear, Julius Caesar and my research project show. All three will be in rehearsal at the same time so it is important that prior to Tuesday I get as much of the ground work laid as I can. I am also trying to complete any other assignments; such as my summative statements for the Hedda Gabler work and the PSS placement. They aren’t due for a few more weeks but when will I have time later?! It’s gonna get crazy but I am very excited!

Today I wanted to show you a bit of Glasgow. What you see below is just my stomping ground; just a small fraction of a big city. These are the places and sites I see pretty much everyday. Enjoy!

Sometimes you need to look up to appreciate the amazing architecture in Glasgow
