There are no words......

The above title pretty much says it all......I'm speechless. Speechless at the wonderful response, the way you guys not only supported the production but also remained totally open to it and accepted it without the slightest hint of prejudice. When we first started this blog, you guys didn't know what the play was about, didn't know what kind of issues it raised or what the 'content' would be. I know some of you did know, but a fair amount of people didn't. Yet despite that, you stuck with the blog, showed an interest in what we were trying to do, found out about the play and trusted us not to dissapoint. And based on some of your own reviews, its seems pretty safe to say that everyone went home some way or another.

Honestly, I'm not too sure what's going to happen with the blog from here on. The cast and myself are moving on to other projects so I doubt the blog will get the same kind of attention it used. But I'd check back here every once and a while if I were you, cos you never know.......The Homecoming experience hit all of us pretty hard. And in a strange way, I don't think we really got the chance to let go of it completely......I know its an experience that I will carry with me forever and I think most of the cast and crew, if not all of them, feel the same. So I'm pretty sure there's still a fair bit of Homecoming blogging to do. Maybe one day Lenny will feel a bit itchy to get some stuff of his chest, maybe he'll find himself eager to talk about the last woman he considered killing or how Ruth seems to be costing a lot more than she's bringing in or maybe Max will regale you with tales about the old days when he could still get it up........or maybe Sam will return with stories from the land of the dead.....that is, if he really died in the first place.

Once again, thank you for everything. The show wouldn't have been the same without your support. Take care of yourselves and remember........look in on the blog every now and then. Never know what you might find.......after all, its never too late to come home.

p.s Thanks for all the great reviews. The personal letter was particularly entertaining. Fuck you very much for writing it Fireangel.

Gavin, I am very disappointed that in your 'what might have been' sequel to The Homecoming, you forgot to mention that upon returning to America (alone), Teddy immediately took the bus to Brokeback Mountain!

This fucker is becoming quite expert in brownnosing. Get out of it, kid. So you think you damn good la. LOL...

Great stuff la, son. I think The Homecoming Production Diaries have taken on a life of its own. One day this will be how all productions will be marketed. Heheheheheh...
