Lionel Elton is busily knocking his (occasionally fluid) cast into
shape and we’ve largely got the hang of all that unfamiliar
language, so the audience should have a fighting chance of knowing
what’s going on! As well as the well-known gory bits of the play
there is a lot of other family drama and some steamy scenes, so we
think you will be well entertained.
we would appreciate any backstage or front-of-house help you can
offer on one or more nights. Because of the length of the play the
start is earlier than usual, and the finish later, so we are seeking
hands to make light work of the set-up and strike each night.
Please reply to this E-mail to volunteer if you can make tea, hold a
piece of wood or work out the change from a five pound note.
like to hear from you if you can stand around on a stage and be
despatched on the odd errand, because it would be nice to have a few
more non-speaking actors – it seems even
King Lear suffered from
the “servant problem”, so if you are interested in the glory of a
brief appearance without having to learn any lines, get in touch!
If you can
put up posters anywhere please pop along to the Hall any Wednesday
night and collect some – the flyer attached shows what they look
like. (Do forward the flyer to everyone who hasn’t put you on their
“blocked” list!) If you can’t make it in person, let me (Penny)
know and we will find a way to get some to you.
