Well now. Tonight is the last night of our latest foray into things theatrical. My thesp mates and I will drag good old Inspector Drake out of the cupboard for a last tread of the boards and then put him away again until his next entrance – who knows when.
Because we are a bunch of friends who have known each other for quite some time, it’s been a lot of fun and has restored my faith in giving up my time for am dram again. A few weeks ago my good mate Gav came to take some photos of us and despite the fact that I have more chins than a Chinese phone book (am working on that currently) they came out jolly well.
He joined us for our technical rehearsal (no costumes and lots of swearage from the lighting and sound chap..)
There is quite a bit of sitting about during a tech
Gav also took some great shots of the dressing room prep
And then we were off. We’ve had some great audiences, given several different versions of the show but above all had lots of laughs. Bloody brilliant!
The hideous wig leaves a lot to be desired I realise…..
As does the false nose….
