I’ve been meaning to get this one made for a couple of years now – ever since I accidentally took the photograph. It’s got a sort of AbEx vibe. I’d somehow managed to capture it as I was putting my phone away, waiting for curtain up at the Oxford Playhouse; waiting for John Shuttleworth. The thing is, it’s still not quite right. I’m thinking of this version as a ‘dress rehearsal’.
*30 x 40 inches being the standard size of movie posters.
