Tomorrow (and Today) Looks Good From Here

It’s crazy to think that this time last week it was ‘hands on deck’, and for a number of us a full on day of painting, hammering and wallpapering, frantically trying to finish off the set of ‘One Man, Two Guvnors.’

And now it’s done.

An extremely enjoyable and crowd pleasing run to three packed houses and a very positive adjudication was the result. An unknown quantity, it was lovely to see so many of the audience remain behind to hear the thoughts and opinions of our visiting adjudicator Louise Manders and equally delightful to hear the many positive observations she made about the show. Constructive (and very slightly controversial and contradictory one might argue), the 20 or so minutes spent in her company after the curtain had closed was intriguing, engaging and rewarding after the many hours put in by cast and crew making the show such a fantastic experience.

And now it’s done.

I am sure that there will be many involved who will not know what to do with themselves today, probably around 8 o’clock;  I have already written about that feeling of bereftness that comes after the curtain has come down (https://matchboxtheatre.wordpress.com/2015/07/05/popular-fiction-part-2-the-slough-of-desponde/)  and I feel pretty sure that this play will be no different.But, to misquote our marvelous protagonist Francis, ‘We did it’. And hopefully entertained and amused over 300 people in the process.

This isn’t the final word on the play, of course, pictures and possibly some sort of review will follow. And of course there is thee grand presentation at the Bromley Theatre Guild this May/June.

But for now, it’s done.
