On the Subject of Scones


I’m not going to lie to you. I was raised to prepare my scones the Cornish way. First the jam and then the cream. My many Devonian friends revile me for this culinary choice but I firmly believe that the Cornish way is the best way. As a very small child and later a teenager we holidayed in Cornwall and I always found it to be a glorious place. You can imagine my elation then (no hyperbole) when I discovered that my next show would be rehearsing in Cornwall for three weeks. Three weeks rehearsing within a stone’s throw of Land’s End.Oh and our accommodation has a view of the sea. And it’s a five minute walk to the beach. And there’s a surf school.

Oh and did I mention, the show I’m rehearsing? It’s a Shakespeare.


That’s all for now,
