Hello all,

I didn't mean to update you again so soon, and this will be very brief, but those of you who read the Sunday Times may have recognised a certain someone on page 3 of last weekend's edition. In a piece on Nicholas Hytner's memoir about life during his tenure at the National Theatre there was a gigantic picture of me jumping the wire, weapon raised, moustache stretched to its limit as I shouted out, puppeteers doing their magic. Hytner's book, Balancing Acts, is a great read, and weirdly coincides with the exact period during which I was involved with the National. There's a bit about War Horse in there but we all know where the real backstage story is, don't we!

Plus, we're almost exactly a third of the way there. Onwards!
