2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #42

Oops, I got distracted. I was getting this round-up together after breakfast this morning. And then I spontaneously decided to melt up all my candle stubs and make some new candles. It’s a time-consuming business, but cheapskates like me stop at nothing when it comes to reusing material *evillaugh*. Several hours later I have poured…

A Novel? A Netflix Show? A Nempty Theatre

Goodness me, the news are coming thick and fast. For someone who doesn’t like chat shows, Richard is definitely the go-to man for all the Vanya promo. Once again! I mean, it feels kind of familiar in that Richard has had quite a bit of promo put on his shoulders before, for other projects. And…

Fangirl in a Tunnel

Today I was working on updating the RAnet news section with the Times magazine interview and other mentions, when yet another UV review came in.

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #38

Richard really has been throwing himself into campaigning for theatre lately. Well, with Covid wreaking havoc in an industry that relies on live events that are held in indoor spaces where social distancing is simply impossible, campaigning on behalf of the performing arts is badly needed and also very much welcome by those who enjoy…

New 60-Seconds Interview with Richard

RA Bulgaria and Hariclea unearthed a new interview with Richard, published in free newspaper Metro in the UK today. Let’s unpick this a little bit. Early childhood reading Enid Blyton as one of Richard’s childhood authors. I had to smile at that a little, because it coincides with my own childhood reading. I loved those…

2020 Armitage Weekly Round-up #37

There we have it. Dublin is back in lockdown, more or less. Despite warnings and requests for cooperation, the rising Covid infection numbers did not motivate people to take more care and keep their distance. From yesterday, Dublin has been placed under stricter restrictions than the rest of the country. We are back to working…
