Friday 26th May and rehearsals are on the stage for the first time. The cast are starting to get into costume (well, some are!) and, overall, the production is coming along well. Only three more weeks to 'lift off'!
A Tomb With A View is set in as sinister an old library as one is likely to come across presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad eyed old man. There, a dusty, lawyer reads a will (involving some millions of pounds) to an equally sinister family one member of which has were wolf tendencies, another wanders around in a toga of Julius Caesar and a third member is a gentle old lady who plants more than seeds in her flower beds. By the third act, there are more corpses than live members left in the cast and what about the sympathetic nurse and the author of romantic novels are they all, or more than, they seem to be? All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.
And behind the scenes in our workshop the set for Tomb with a View is beginning to take shape!
