It has been a while since I last did some theatre photography, but now I am back in Cambridge for a week. This afternoon I met up with the cast of Gods of Carnage, which plays in Corpus Playroom 10-14 May. Jonathan Ben-Shaul had suggested the Chalk Mines at Cherry-Hinton, so Zephyr Brüggen sourced us a taxi and we headed over there. With us were also Evie Butcher, Isla Iago and Miguel Borges.
When you’re brought up with a kind of John Wayne-ish idea of virility, you don’t want to settle this kind of problem with a lot of yakking.
I am not a member of polite society. What I am and always have been is a fucking Neanderthal.
Fortunately, there is still such a thing as the art of co-existence, isn’t there?
What I always say is, we’re a lump of potter’s clay and it’s up to us to fashion something out of it. Perhaps it won’t take shape till the very end.
Were you hoping for a glimpse of universal harmony?
How many parents standing up for their children become infantile themselves?
A man who can’t give the impression that he’s a loner has no texture.
I’ve never been so unhappy. In fact, I think this is the unhappiest day of my life.
You see, I believe in the God of Carnage. He has ruled, uninterruptedly, since the dawn of time.
Thanks to the cast for a great fun day out in the wilderness. Cambridge has so many hidden gems, if you have not been here then take an afternoon and explore the place. We just saw one of the pits, there are two more, which are filled with water.
Many thanks to the Zephyr, Evie, Isla, Jonathan and Miguel!
