Cinema isn't live, which is why this was such fun.
Last week I became possibly the world's first live trailer for a piece of theatre.
During the trailers before two separate showings of Cosmopolis at ARC in Stockton, my big face turned up to talk about Ash, which is on there in September. This would have just been a big version of a rubbish YouTube video, except that I was there live, talking to this actual audience. The couple at the back in matching his and hers glasses. The bloke in the fourth row with sunglasses on his head. The woman at the front in the loudly flowery skirt.
The audience were initially bewildered, then they enjoyed it volubly. At the end, some people waved.
I enjoyed it so much, we're doing it again next week.
I'll let you know if any of them come.
