I'm typing this in Leicester, during a break in our get-in for tonight's show at the Phoenix. Last night we performed in Hull. The best show yet, I would say - with yet another full house. The pitch invasion happened again - we seem to be converting the north of England to African versions of actor-audience relationships.
One of the nice things about touring like this in the early stages is that it allows us to play the show in, before a wide range of audiences and in a wide range of spaces, before the London press night next week. The space in Hull was vast and epic: tonight's is smaller in playing area, but has a bigger auditorium. After all this the Africa Centre may feel a bit cramped: but we'll certainly be able to fill it in terms of vocal and emotional power!
