While the holiday-laundry is gently doing its spins in the washing machine, I have time for a quick update:

I’ve updated the list of reviews for Double Feature. The shows saw their last performances on Saturday, so there won’t be any further updates to that entry.

I’ve added a small gallery for Double Feature.

Now that Double Feature is over – would you like the benches as a souvenir? Or maybe the bar from The Swan?

Not quite finished with Double Feature yet – there will be a contest later this week in connection with the plays.

The Scottish Movie Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has been released on DVD and Blu-ray. Coming to your local  DVD-by-Mail-Service very soon.

In completely different news, Kitaky has sent in fanart: “The Royal meets My Little Pony”. Looks like Dr. Burnett was really deciding his departure on a hoof…!

The second game release this month. After “Brink”, we now get “The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings”,  a role-playing video game developed by Polish studio CD Projekt RED for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360. Damian voices various characters.

Please click the picture below to get to the official website, but only if you’re over 17 years of age.

Damian O’Hare: “Brink” (VG)

Posted in various work, video games with tags , , , on 9 May, 2011 by ambarussa

11 May 2011 sees the release of “Brink”

an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character whether playing alone, with your friends, or against others online. You decide the combat role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankind’s last refuge. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

Damian O’Hare’s is one of the eight “voices” you can choose from to play (with a “fairly strong Northern Irish accent”).

“Brink” is available on Amazon and suitable for folks over 16 years of age.  Frank, authority for all things gaming, has already placed an order, so buyers shouldn’t be disappointed.
Don’t ask me – my favourite VG is Plants vs. Zombies

“Grapes of Wrath” at Hall for Cornwall, Truro: last night cancelled, this night a go

Posted in grapes of wrath, theatre with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 20 November, 2009 by ambarussa

From the Hall for Cornwall’s blog:

THE SHOW WILL GO ON!

“Unfortunately, during last night’s performance one of the below-stage sprinklers was triggered.  Due to the location, water collected very quickly and for safety reasons power in the theatre had to be shut off and the performance cancelled.”

“All audience members are being offered the choice between a refund or an alternate performance, with Box Office staff working today to re-accommodate many of last night’s audience into the remaining performances.  The play is well worth  seeing and we hope to be welcoming most of our disappointed audience members back tonight and tomorrow.”

Having worked 48 hrs in a row once because the pyrotechnics of a band triggered the sprinkler system at a venue, I know only too well how staff and technicians must have slaved away to get everything going again. Very disappointing for the audience, and a nightmarish experience for cast and crew of the production. But nobody was injured, that’s what really counts.

Please exchange your ticket and watch “The Grapes of Wrath” today or tomorrow; don’t miss this great production. And while you’re there, give the staff a  smile and a thank you – I’m sure it would be appreciated. 🙂

Box Office can be contacted on 01872 262466
