So Stewart and Rita and I had a big week in Sydney this past week, seeing some of the best theatre we've ever seen, having some very productive meetings, and instituting a new policy.


I shall tell you about the Sydney Festival when I have more time, but in the meantime, let me just introduce you to our new policy:


Wherever possible (and this contingency should be maximised whenever the opportunity arises) Standing There Productions meetings should conclude with a swim, a surf, and/or a beer with a harbour view.


I know. We're so Hollywood. It used to be about the art.


Now. Somebody hand me my snorkel.
