Ok, here it is. My story of the tentmaker tour…its gonna be big, published and sold to waterstones with booksignings and security. Not just a pretentious title that screams…celeb autobiography, I’m thinking a posing picture of me next to a tent….there’s a storm but my face screams ‘vogue cover model’ as despite the wind and rain, my hair still looks magnificent!!

Then! An Action shot to show off my superhuman skill of oozing energy none stop!! How about…

hmm…perhaps not that one…yeah, I’ll try find something a little less, well sleepy.

Then, I’m thinking something that draws people in, something that gets people’s attention… ‘during the tentmaker tour, Cath got pregnant!‘…hmm – but something thats not a big phat lie.

How about Paul the apostle, myself and the storyteller got in a fight…or in one venue we forgot the connectors that held the set together!! (yeah, like we’d ever do that…..)

OR how about ten things I learnt from a show about ‘the tentmaker’ Yes…I’ll do that.

1. Never trust a satsuma (Perhaps not the most relevant of points)

2. Always remember your set

3. Never trust a satsuma (I know I’ve said it before but its important)

4. Bring deodrant, anti persperent and any other ‘rant’ or ‘roll on’, as on stage for an hour with bright lights can get quite sweaty.

5. Eat less lasagne before the tour (as on tour you’ll have plenty!)

6. When driving a diesel van…don’t fill it with unleaded petrol (not that I did this mind, what you take me? An idiot!?…..awkward pause)

7. Take a camel on tour…suprisignly the more you strain your voice, the less voice you have left…I know, who would have thought? But still, if I had to do it again I’d hijack a camel for access to water…I’ll drink him dry and give him the hump.

8. Warn audience of disturbing images….one time I lifted my shirt up; perhaps advance warning for the more queezy of audience members would have been good.

9. Adlibbing is fun…but be prepared to be heckled by pantomime fanatics!

10. Last but most certainly not least…Paul the Apostle is a man of incredible faith, but a man noneoftheless. A man who has changed the way I see the Gospel and the new testament. A man who inspires me and challenges me, that if only I was half as souled out as he was for God’s message…how much more God could work through my life.

End Rant.

Then

    Don’t forget to do a limited-edition leatherbound version for 3 or 4 times the price of the standard hardback! It could come with a free miniature self-assembly tent.

    Seriously, a DVD release of The Tentmaker would make my day. I also think you should write a book with the title “Never Trust a Satsuma”

    You must be feeling exhausted Dave! But well worth it for all the people who saw the show and were touched by it. Your portayal of Paul the apostle was eye opening, it brought him to life for the first time for me. An amazing show. xx

    ps. My heart nearly skipped a beat when I read the bit that mentioned Cath!
