Saint Aggie's '84

The history of a new musical as it comes to be…

So many hours in one day…

I’ve spent the best part of this double day up in the sky. Sunny and about 3PM for the past seven hours or so. If only there could be this many hours in every day…then I could really get some work done. So far I’ve made writing notes on Saint Aggie’s ‘84, watched two movies, eaten three lunches, charted out much of “All The While” from Red Lips and chatted with my Afghani neighbour in between trips to the washroom…oh yes, and had a good discussion with David Barnet about the show. I’ll explain.

You’d think this flying alone thing would be a bit lonely but it really is a small world. On my flight from Edinburgh I ran into Jonathan Kawchuk’s family. Actually we met in the Edinburgh Airport before the flight and I had a good strong coffee at the coffee shop right by our gate (they all had tea). I lost track of them once we arrived at Heathrow where my leisurely three hour terminal transfer somehow became a 45 minute mad-dash due to delays out of Edinburgh followed by my favourite circling forever over London. Puffed out and relieved I stumbled onto my flight to Edmonton where, sitting at the seat immediately in front of me, was Mr. David Barnet who was returning to Canada not from Edinburgh but from Paris, among other places.

I spilled a few of the beans to him about my plans for what I might attempt in the plot of Saint Aggie’s and since our talk I’ve been thinking about it for the whole flight…even during the movies, and lunches, etc…

Looking down at Canada, Edinburgh already seems a little like a dream. I’ll let it remain a dream for a little while, but truthfully I’ll be back to work right away. I’ll keep you all in the loop and let you know what develops.

Don’ forget we’ll be recording on either the Sept 11 or 12.
