This week I had a rare experience, five whole days in my studio and the chance to actually get some creative stuff created. Naturally I got next to none of that done. But, amidst the email answering, the Sitcom Trials sorting, the Hot Rod Cow artwork finishing (I've had a half finished 10-page strip hanging around for the last year which is now only waiting to be lettered and, possibly, coloured), the commission-pitching-art done for a possible poetry book I might get to draw, and sundry other nonsense that expanded to fill the allotted space, I managed to get some Socks Shakespeare written.
Othello, which had two test runs at Leicester before I decided it wasn't funny enough to work live, has come out nicely in this video. And, having taken a bit more of a rewrite, might yet come out live again. Two things that are definitely going into the live Shakespeare show, and therefore haven't been videod yet, are Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day, a short skit that I have a good feeling about, and Oh Mr Porter, a song which will be great if it works as well live as it does when I sing it in the studio.
Oh, and this, which might get a live outing, and is a bit of fun either way.
It's a bit of Macbeth based nonsense. Do enjoy.
