Hi Caroline. Do you mean stage fright? I’ve not experienced that. First night nerves can sometimes be fairly acute but that’s about it. There are usually too many other things to concentrate on – I’d probably be mortified if there wasn’t. There’s plenty of stage freight on tour though.
Disappointingly non-weird before a show, but I know what you mean, nerves can make people do some bizarre things. I’m no stranger to anxiety.
(is ‘tennantbutt’ a trepidatious condition?)
