Are you any relation, Bobby?
Nope! Just a coincidance.
It seems a great chance to pursue clues about a script for the stage show of Illuminatus! (not even The British Library has one, although they do have some sound recordings of the show that I hope to sample, having seen it live at the time.)I love the idea of a possible staged version of Cosmic Trigger.And I would like to meet John Higgs, as I have enjoyed his books.All that, and as we have not had a European get-together this year, it may be an opportunity for some of the MLA Illuminauts to meet up, as well.Over all, it sounds like a great evening in the making!
I envy you guys and am counting on some reliable psychedelic reports.Peace and Do What Thou Will...
Bogus Magus - If I remember correctly the National Theatre Archive have audio and possibly some video of the Illuminatus stage version the Ken did. Plus posters and pictures too :)
Excellent! Thanks. Must make an appointment for the next time I pass through London.I not only saw the 5 play, ten hour version, but a shortened version they did at The Roundhouse, which was so compressed that I doubt that anyone but fans would even understand it.The night I was there they announced that Prunella Gee was not well, and that all her female parts (ahem) would be played by Ken Campbell. That was a particularly fine evening out!
