|The director - directing in the directors hat, naturally|
|The incredibly healthy snack we get in rehearsal...|
Do you want the audience to walk away asking questions or do you want them to simply be entertained?
|So exactly how many time do I walk to the bar?|
|Intense concentration required to act as prompt and direct a show at the same time|
|Producer Shihas ( the sweetest being ever) and our saintly director.|
|I would look worried too|
Each cast member has taken their role and ,with Brent, turned it into a little vignette, do you know what I mean? Can I use “vignette” in this context? It feels right so I will. From the always at the bar Aunt Dorothy ( Jenny Gray who is married to Billy who plays the old man - talk about a short leash, wink, wink) and her henpecked husband Fred ( Arjun Burman), to the old mans devoted daughter (Celia Cookson) to Peter’s friend Taylor (Osman Aboubakr) the characterisations are well defined and engaging. Not forgetting the eccentric officiate at Rita and Peters wedding played by Mike Green ( Mike is devoted to Celia another couple in the show) and oh the convoluted connections in the show). We have Deepan Gandhi and Chineme Prince, who have joined our cast fairly recently, as our perky bar keep and Jamaican waiter respectively.
|Yes we know our lines|
