Greetings Pantaloons

I've blogged a couple of times about the performance I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe last year of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM performed by The Pantaloons in the Royal Botanical Gardens. I posted a 4 and a half minute excerpt from the performance online. Mark Hayward, the guitarist in the clip, just posted a comment (see the post on Wednesday, June 11, 2008)

I did not stay for the whole performance, unfortunately - it was in the middle of August yet I was freezing! I had to go into the little cafe nearby and get warm. But I did tape more than 4 and a half minutes and I will be putting that online for Mark and any other Pantaloons who may visit.


I've posted all 5 parts of my video of the performance online. Watching the first one reminds me that in fact my daughter and I were on a walking tour which eventually took us to the Firth of Forth, and didn't realize there was a Fringe show at the Royal Botanical Gardens - we just wanted to see the Gardens. You can hear me in the first tape saying it isn't a children's show as I thought, but rather AMSND.

Watch all 20+ minutes here:
