Next production: A Night on the Tiles
These continue and we have completed the blocking and moving into the subtle bits of the rehearsal. Don’t forget everyone is invited to come along and see progress! We usually retire to the pub on Thursday afterwards. Please let me know when you are not available: The play is divided into two hander scenes most of the time, so I will make sure that when you are in rehearsal, you will not hang around, but work all the time, and just focus on your bits very intensely. I will give everybody time off, but obviously we will need to run it continuously after “half term” at the end of October. I’ll put in a couple of Sunday afternoons just to get it fluent, but we’ll see how it goes.
