Rejection is hard to take

OK. So we’ve just found out that our venue application for the Camden Fringe Festival has been rejected. And this is from the theatre that thought the Martini Bond synopsis was “interesting”. What’s that about building you up only to knock you down? Now I’m sounding bitter – or is that just plain grumpy?

Onwards and upwards though. So we plough on with a second application. But now time is running against us. All applications have to be in by the end of March. The festival organisers had told us that the sooner you applied, the better chance you stood of being accepted. They just seem to have left out that the venues can pick and choose, then let you down at the last minute.

Oh, and how they let you down. “It looks like a great show, so I hope you’re able to find another home for it,” the rejection said. Great? Great! How grating.

We’re determined to find a venue, though. We will not be beaten. After all, who was it that said all the world’s a stage … perhaps a pavement will have to do.
