Get Carmel to the Globe!

Dear Wellington Friends,

GETCARMELTOTHEGLOBE
As you know I have been working in Meet the Churchills at Circa, which finishes on July 16 and have been sharing a dressing room with the wonderful Carmel McGlone.

Carmel has a fellowship to study for a month at the Globe Theatre in London with 11 other mid-career professional actors from around the world and she is having a fundraiser on Monday 25th July at BATS.

Attached is a flyer, but in case you can't open it or don't have time, here are the details.

At one Gathering, we talked about what being a critic is all about. I thought about this again reading The Guardian's blog post Can theatre critics ever be objective? by Natasha Tripney. Towards the end she says:
