"We liked to entertain... ourselves mainly... and it was a comedy show much of the time.
I was referred to as Old Master, because of my artistic tendencies rather than my age - of course. My trusty assistant and the star of the show, was the inimitable skinny slave. The rest of the cast was a wonderful and courageous collection of 75 non-professional volunteers. I tied my own ropes"
"We believe great companies stem from great employees, which is why we only hire the best, brightest, and friendliest individuals to join our team.
...Meet Rupert, head-of-house, general manager, and skilled keyboard sitter."
Rupert also resides in London where he likes to ignore his expensive cat bed preferring to sleep in the sink.
