Benji is brutally frank. He tries to soften this with a gentle voice, and sometimes a pause as he sympathetically angles his head, but it doesn't change the fact. Fortunately I like this approach, especially towards collaboration. It makes things clearer, easier and wastes less time if everybody knows just where they stand. So I was perfectly ready to take on Benji's thoughts.
As it happens, though, we were on the same page from the start. And it was a brilliant meeting, leaving the both of us buzzing and wholly unable to sleep. There are changes to be made to the script of course, but these will only improve the strength and vision of this unique theatre piece.
It's going to be one hell of a tale.
