Cultural Life: Alexandra Gilbreath, Actress
Saturday 25 August 2012
Having just spent the last few months at the Chichester Festival Theatre, I loved Richard Clifford's production of Heartbreak House, and found it absolutely captivating.
The Pallant House Gallery in the heart of Chichester. Thoroughly enjoyed the Peter Blake exhibition. Spent a fabulous hour pushing the buttons on the free jukebox. Great if the weather sucks and it beats going to the gym.
The delights of living with small children mean any time spent on my own passes in glorious silence. My kids love to listen to music and I use it as a distraction technique. I can get a good hour to unload the dishwasher and hang out the washing by captivating them with the soundtrack of The Wizard of Oz, One Direction, Maroon 5, Duffy, Selena Gomez...
I sobbed daily watching the Olympic coverage. However have just finished the first episode of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. I feel an addiction coming on.
Looking forward to completing Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall.
Alexandra Gilbreath is in 'The Merry Wives of Windsor', Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon from 25 October to 12 January 2013 (www.rsc.org.uk)
