Can you see what it is yet?
Had a great experience yesterday afternoon. Myself and Steve were in The Unity Theatre with Carl (Director) and Kal Ross (Sound Engineer) and Phil, the Technician. We were waiting for Nina to arrive. So hanging round, discussing one or two things, and I’m trying t imagine what it will feel like to be here, with a full house (hope!), watching the play com to life.
Strange, standing in an empty room, which soon will be populated by your imagination. And then Nina arrives. Nina is a bit deceptive, and the box she carries could be anything; but the paint on her hands gives her away. She’s now on a training programme with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford. A LIPA graduate and highly, highly thought of by the people I know who know her.
So, Nina arrives, (has travelled from Stratford to meet us) then pulls open the box, and there, in scaled minature, are the contents of my imagination made real. I’m not going to say too much about the set, in the somewhat blurred picture you can see here, except to say that it fits the play perfectly, and now I can’t wait to see it full-size. But I have to say, can’t believe the generosity and talent of the people working with us to make this happen. More about that later.
