October

Sam Harris's superb production of what is probably the great Arthur Miller's greatest play "The Crucible", gave us a powerful and utterly absorbing theatre "re-start" after the extended refurbishment break. The large cast gave of their best and rallied together in true Talisman efficient fashion when John had to withdraw for health reasons.

Special thanks go to James for stepping in as Danforth and to the entire cast for some rich and compelling performances. Dan's Proctor was an excellently realised character, as was Clare's Mary Warren, as was Paige's Abigail, as was.... well everyone's really..... in this committed and highly effective piece of theatre.

One of the joys of such a production is its inclusive nature - seeing actors back on our stage after a while, welcoming newcomers and watching other actors extend their range and hone their skills... The whole show was superbly stage managed by Corrina, with some really lovely lighting effects and music enhancing the whole thing further. Our thanks go to all involved.

Next up we have a change of tone and pace in the iconic and much more gentle "Ladies in Lavender" set in Cornwall in 1936, this piece offers insights into longing, sisterhood and dreams. The cast of 6 are currently hard at work on it, under the watchful eye of the ever-youthful Mr Draper. Spies tell me this one is selling well already so - you know what to do - buy tickets, Now!

NEXT APRIL
I am now able to announce that Gill Bowser will be directing the wonderful "MY COUSIN RACHEL", adapted from the book by Daphne du Maurier. This tense and intriguing play was developed into a film, starring Rachael Weiss a short while ago and it offers 4 good central parts and some smaller ones. Please see Gill's article elsewhere in this Talismag
