Highlights of The Week
I finished scripting “Into The Gap” a documentary today. I am recording on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th at The BBC. I hear my book Rebel Without Applause is part of the Emory Douglas Black Panther exhibition at Urbis in Manchester. I get an invite to Namibia too which is nice.
Confirmation came through for a weeks performance at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival and some more dates in South Africa came in too The Gil Scott Heron interview is in edit and I shall scripting on Wednesday 25th Thursday 26th next week.
I received news from my projects manager this week that I shall be returning to BBC Radio Four’s Saturday Live which is exciting. I have been in the Southbank centre four days of this week. I arrived at 9am and left at 6pm. Except Friday when I fly to Sweden.
Tonight saw Inua Elams at Arcola, my local theatre in Hackney east London. I have always wanted to go to Arcola. This was my first time. It is the week of Mothers Day. I should call New York. I shall do that. I shall wish her happy Mothers Day. I have never done that before. But I think this time I will. Maybe Mothers Day is connected to the other most significant day of this year: Sunday is the first Day of Spring.
