In the play, sixteen year-old Eleanor and twenty-one year-old Claire arrive in a nameless small town. Their relationship is not clear. Are they really sisters, or is Claire Eleanor's mother? Eleanor goes to school and Claire gets a job in a pub.
During an exercise in her drama class, Eleanor confesses that she has been alive for over two hundred years and has survived by drinking human blood. Her classmates think she is utterly crazy and Mint, her teacher, puts her in touch with the school counsellor. She makes one friend, Frank, a boy who has been home educated and is as much of an oddity as Eleanor. He tries to get to the bottom of her vampire delusion, thinking it an epic and compelling psychosis. Why would anyone want to be undead?
Frank’s parents believe that Ella is an anorexic - why does she never eat? Eleanor has started to write her life story as a play. She describes Claire’s background as a prostitute in 19th century London and her own as a child in a private orphanage. Meanwhile, things are falling apart. People are disappearing. Are Eleanor and Claire vampires? Or are they troubled young women on the run?
The play is split between the 19th and 21st centuries. I play Eleanor in the 19th century, and my friend Bronagh plays Eleanor in the 21st. I'm so excited! As rehearsals go on, I'll be posting pictures, and perhaps even videos! I'm so happy!

I first found this song as a cover by Katy Perry in the BBC Live Lounge, and I'm in love with both versions...

I'm going to go off now and do my happy dance again, I'm so happy!
I love any music that makes me feel like I want to jump in the air, fall down, scream and throw myself out of a window.
Florence Welch. Yes, the Flo-Love is still strong over here at Musings...

Two hours to go.
Do they really have those family reunions in America like you see on TV? Strange.
Although I'm not looking forward to the Mass. I cannot abide recorder music.
I hope to spray my hair red.
I don't like it, how I've almost nothing to say on this subject. I should. Oh well, maybe when it's over. Perhaps I'll take pictures of the party...hmmm.
