To say the atmosphere was buzzing after the final night of ‘Double Top’ would be an understatement. The post-play adrenaline, the obvious popularity of the play and the enjoyment of being a part of this great production guaranteed a great party on stage.
Once again it was thanks to Mike Morland’s skills in creating such a believeable bar but he had to wait until Saturday night after the play before we brought real alcohol into our ‘pub’.
If we were worried that a more earthy kind of play would be an issue then our fears were displaced from the first night as word spread and gave us a virtual sell out on every night. Only the incredible Kick In The Baubles and Calendar Girls can beat the success of this production. Ron Rose’s wonderfully crafted play with its natural language, laughter, tears and music is something we will remember for a long time. And our thanks also to Gareth Tudor Price for his choreography of the feature fight scene and other well-received tips and it was a pleasure and an honour to have Ron join us in a real pub after our first night’s performance on Thursday.
Watch out for our next posts which will feature photos from the play. (Why not enrol for our emails and never miss a post? Front Page click here and enter your email (left panel on tablets, scroll to bottom on mobiles)
