A Christmas Angel
The last few months have been very busy, what with our run of shows at the Barbican and Soho Theatres, and taking part in Live From Television Centre.
All of this means we’ve left recording our annual Christmas Message a little late this year. But, keen to get something out before the big day, we set about filming our festive video today.
The team consisted of Leftwing Idiot, Fran, Will, Ruth, her three nephews, a Christmas Tree and a fluffy fake beard. All being well you’ll see the results in a couple of days. Shortly after we’d finished filming I had a ‘ticcing fit’ but I was in safe hands not only because Fran, Will and Leftwing Idiot were there to support me but because Will was looking particularly angelic.
Will’s festive halo didn’t budge throughout the fit, despite my best efforts to remove it. In fact it stayed firmly planted on his head for the rest of the evening. He only took it off when Zoë arrived and placed it ceremoniously on her head, passing it on together with the angelic duty of keeping me safe.
