So I'm a little drunk but I've just been out with some members of the cast of Titus Andronicus, the Shakespeare that I'm doing in Edinburgh, next month. Its suddenly occurred to me..OMG... that its on next week.
However I have been wondering...do actors drink too much?
You finish a rehearsal, you are knackered, yur head is strained and you feel like you really need a drink.
You grab one with the guys.
You start having a laugh
The rest as they say is history.
I think the bonding experience of drinking and recovering together is very important and yet considering how many mature actors I've met that are secret alcoholics......
Not really sure what to think, but I tell you what I ain't drinking sparkly water for a month.
