Reminiscences and Anecdotes

Members are encouraged to write about their experiences of working on or seeing this production. Please leave your name. Anonymous entries may be deleted.

The show featured a complex piece of scenery that was a tree, a dining table and four poster bed (go figure!) that lasted until the final matinee when it collapsed leaving Mike Hall and Sue Goodes in a pile of matchsticks in the centre of the stage. One audience member thought it was a marvellous effect!! Needless to say we had just the tree for the final performance!! - Bruce Murray, Director
