'Tour Tales' by Sophie Tetlow

Touring Need A Little Help has been a wonderfully fun journey- both literally and figuratively. We’ve wizzed (or crawled in traffic) up and down the country in our not-so-subtle bright orange van filled with cast, crew and set that has to be so tightly packed I reckon we could win the Tetris world championships. 

Our get-ins and get-outs became a game as we all placed bets on how many minutes it would take us, however after game no.2 we had to make our bets on a piece of paper and remove our watches as people were accused of ‘sabotage’. During the long journey from Newcastle to London we found the answer to many of life’s unanswered questions, such as ‘what is the best vegetable?’ and ‘what is the best animal- a goat, a horse or a whale?’. Discussions around these topics got very heated but luckily it didn’t tear the touring company apart and the show went on.

 

The reception in all the cities has been great, and during the playtime at the end of the show I’ve been privileged enough to overhear some lovely comments from both children and parents. The kids were comfortable and playful in the space, so much so that it became a problem getting them to leave before we had to reset for the next performance!
