On Sunday, mac (midlands arts centre) closed its doors for trade for the next 18 months or so. A good many people had turned out to see the old girl off. Here at The Other Way Works, we’ll miss the mac while its gone. We’ve developed and performed two of our shows there, and we’ve come to rely on the mac for ready rehearsal space, banter with the box office and cafe/bar staff, and massive jacket potatoes to fuel you through the long hours of get-ins and outs. We look forward to a newer and better mac in the future, after the big refurb has done its job.
