Well, look who's been on regional television in the UK! :D
I saw Stephen on Saturday after "The Man Who Was Thursday" and had a chat with him. (My friend, who came with me to see the play, estimated him to be lots younger than he is, so I told him and much LOLz has since ensued... Heheh.) Terry Pratchett went to the play, too, which was cool. He seemed a bit lost at not being mobbed, for once - must be nice to be anonymous sometimes! It was a very good play and it's a shame it wasn't as well attended as the last one - it was very funny and entertaining (and confusing!), but well played by all and pretty faithful to the book.Anyway, the Studio Theatre Club's next play will be Agatha Christie's "THE HOLLOW" - a good ol' murder mystery! Should be fun. It will run from 17th to 20th August 2011 and starts at 7:30pm @ the Unicorn Theatre, Thames St, Abingdon. Tickets will be £8.Just thought I'd mention that Stephen's not 100% sure that "Snuff" will happen because he needs to see more recent drafts of the book before he can say for sure that it's stageable. At present it is but he needs to see more of the text, first. We'll have to wait and see. The STC's website still states that "Snuff" will play February 22nd to 25th, so keep your eyes on that.I will hopefully have some sketches drawn soon based on the last play. Don't have much reference material but it shouldn't be hard to throw a few simple ones together. :)
I'm doing my best to pimp this play even though I've only managed to persuade the same friend who came with me to the last Studio Theatre Club play (which was "A Midsummer Night's Dream") to come again for this one. :) (She loved the last one! I loved the last one! Come on! Join us!)"THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY"Based on the book by G K Chesterton - Adapted by Brian Macken
Adapted from GK Chesterton's novel, it tells the story of poet Gabriel Syme, who finds revolution revolting and, after becoming an undercover detective, infiltrates a Europe-wide secret organisation dedicated to the overthrow of society. The seven-strong ruling council take their names from the days of the week; Syme is elected to the group as Thursday. Attempting to foil their dastardly plans, Syme sets out on a journey during which it becomes apparent that, like him, his fellow anarchists are not always what they appear. But the question that looms largest is the identity of the elusive, terrifying Sunday.

For those of us who will not be travelling to see "Feet of Clay" staged by Stephen's possy (also known as Studio Theatre Club) this weekend, and for those of us who WILL BUT CAN'T WAIT TWO DAYS (No, not me. Maybe next time ;)), he posted a link at alt.fan.pratchett to some production pictures:http://www.studiotheatreclub.com/Gallery.htmlHey, have fun y'all who's going! :D
As you seem a community who might be interested - here are three random pictures of Mr Briggs.( BriggsyCollapse )
My dear dark_clerks and stephen_briggs Appreciators,
Stephen Briggs has asked if we can all keep our fingers crossed.
He's hoping (as I imagine we all do), that he will at some point be cast as Lord Vetinari for a DW film/TV production.
My request is that you all keep your fingers crossed at all times. Get an extra pair of hands if you have to!
