I Wish I Were Cleverer
Because if I were I could dash off this little play I'm writing for Southwark - Everything Must Go - while keeping abreast of the international situation, forging ahead with Zadie Smith's On Beauty (started it in the IOW and I think it's delightful), plotting and planning my next May Queen rewrite, starting research for the two plays after that (Robinson Crusoe, and a comedy about astronomy and witchcraft), while at the same time keeping on top of the Miniaturists planning (next show August 20th, our last at Southwark), spending qualidee time with the family, catching up with friends, putting up pictures in the sitting room, and even, even going to see one or two things at the theatre. Hope to get to Under The Black Flag on Friday. What else is unmissable?
