Last week I went with some friends from work to see another colleague of ours perform as part of Leith Theatre in their version of Tunes of Glory – apparently it was originally a film starring Sir Alex Guinness. Anyways, we went along and if I’m being honest I don’t think we were expecting much. How wrong we were. We had a great time and the play was well executed by the various amateurs actors. I really enjoyed the story and thought the acting was of a very high standard. It kind of reminds me of whenever I say I’m in a band. People talk to you about it but assume that if you’re not known then you’re probably not very good. The number of times people have come up to me after a show and said “wow, you were great” or “you were actually very good”……it makes me laugh. I should have been more expectant rather than dismissive of Duncan’s play. Why did I immediately assume it would not be good? It’s weird. But I should know better. And I will in the future.
