It seems crazy. Just twelve weeks from initial move blocking to dismantling the set after the play. A frenzied few days of set building, a performance week and then dismantling and packing away and by Sunday 1pm it was as though it had never happened – except for the buzz and the thrill of performing a wonderful script and the appreciative feedback of our audiences.
We were proud of the set which, as usual, was constructed over a weekend. Somehow we were able to create within that limited space a lounge and galley kitchen, and the all-important balcony overlooking the river.
It was an enjoyable evening for all, not least for new member Gary (2nd from R), who successfully completed his first acting performance as ex-boxer and minder, Micky.
RolePlay’s Director Jayne, justifiably pleased with the production, having after play drinks with Richard who had co-ordinated the construction of the set. Without the help of his friends and other local supporters of our group we would not be able to complete our ambitious sets.
Our Monday night our General meeting confirmed what we already knew, that the play had proved popular with our audiences and that our ticket sales had led once again to almost capacity nights. And we are seeing increasing numbers of new faces in our audiences too.
We can’t wait to show you our photos from the dress rehearsal performance in our next post, which will appear this week.
