The Desert Island Theatreā„¢

Question: If you were on a desert island with a theatre and you were allowed one production, what production would be showing -- with the added incentive that the cast would have access to the island and would be in character at all times?

Lex: I thought The Producers was good.

Gary: Did you?

Lex: You've got to think about which one has the best group of good looking girls in it, if they're going to be coming onto the island -- it's not just about the performance.

Gary: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Flying car and Julie Scrumptious or whatever her name is. Can I have the props?

Lex: The Lion King would be good, if you could have the props.

Gary: Yeah, you could always eat the cast if you get really desperate.

Parole Board Web

Lex has just finished the website for this year's recruitment of Parole Board Members. It has all sorts of information people will find useful and hopefully drive them toward the Parole Board in big droves of qualified, diverse, sensible applications. And it has some nifty interactive elements too.

Check it out here.

more picking on Gary

these guys couldn't have picked a better name for the character in their playstation advert.

not that we're puerile or anything over here at PRC, but we did spend the rest of Tuesday calling him 'Sally'.

Upon seeing the below blog, Gary Seabrook said:

'Back to the Future II? What's that? Is it any good?'

I don't think I need to say any more.

Hello, McFly.

He's been there. He's got the t shirt.

But he's never seen the film.

You heard me. Gary Seabrook, Art Director, Penna Recruitment Communications, has never seen Back to the Future.

He points out that he has seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which I think he is trying to offer up as some sort of redeeming statement. Frankly though, I don't think there's any excuse for not knowing who Marty McFly is. Especially if you actually own a DeLorean t shirt.

We are launching an official 'Adopt an 80s-Culture Disadvantaged Art Director' appeal. Please send your old copies of Back to the Future 1 & 2 (because 3 is a waste of time as I'm sure we all agree) to:
