“Well, it’s show week and rehearsals are getting more and more focused and intense as we draw closer to our opening at The Lowry. The cast are so excited to get in the studio and perform our first shows but there’s definitely an air of nervous anticipation in the room! It has been an incredible process to watch the play grow from the script we were initially given to the piece of theatre we have created now, and we can only hope that Paul is going to be pleased with the results and enjoy the show! I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed my time working with my fellow actors and director James Baker who have been so inspiring in the process of realizing this play and moving it from page to stage. To be able to have freedom to create and make so much of a minimalist set and costume design has been so teaching in terms of what we really need to ‘create theatre’. So much work has been brought to life by imagination, spot-on characterization and brilliant sound, lighting and overall design that we’ve created something which is quite a little treat, I think! Friday’s first ‘taster’ performance of the show went well, and I cannot wait for the house lights to go down on opening night and to see what our first audience makes of the piece! To my fellow actors, break a leg, to Paul, hope it’s wonderful to see the piece up on ‘legs’, and a big thank you to our team and Organized Chaos for helping it all to happen. Let’s make it a cracker!”
