Another successful week of Poles Apart has passed with great audience turnout and wonderful responses to the work, including in Spalding, of all places, where an orderly queue of Poles formed to have their photo taken with us and to congratulate us on telling the real story of Poland. A proud moment for Mark and I indeed.
This week, the show just kept getting better but I reckon that Spalding is the highlight so far as on Valentine's Night, a great show in Helmsley to a packed theatre, was a little spoilt by two people walking out just as we got to the bit where we join the audience together in a moment of sharing multicultural roots. Mark and I await their letter of complaint to see what the fuss was about.
I must confess, as they flustered their way out I had a dig at them by saying I was glad they were going, rather than having them spoil the atmosphere and the audience responded in a sterling way by engaging even more vigorously in going around the world in 8 minutes.
And below is a real treat, the latest video trailer for Poles Apart that includes live footage shot at a triumphant gig in Darlington.
