A tale I heard

Actor, writer and comedian Katy Wix on difficult auditions:

"One was for a sketch show that had lots of TV pastiches in it … They gave me this sketch and said just give this a read please, which was fine. My part was “dragon 2” and the other comedian started reading as dragon 1, and I thought well as it’s a dragon I’ll do it Welsh. So I started acting it out and doing the accent, as I’m Welsh myself, breathing fire … they weren’t really laughing, which I thought was odd. Then I realised it was a Dragon’s Den sketch. I had been wondering why this dragon was talking about money so much. The amazing thing was, I slowly, subtly turned my character into Deborah Meaden. It was pretty stressful. Then they gave me a Spooks sketch to do, and I nearly went into it being a ghost."

A tale I wrote

If my torso skin was a suit jacket 
to take off at the end of the day

I wonder if I would wash it
with my current regularity.

I wonder if I would lend it
to someone on a cold night

or stuff a hip flash in my ribs for
weddings I don't want to go to.
