Our first play, "Private Lives", involved 6 months of preparation

with the whole company playing a part...as we wanted to do Noel Coward proud.

Paul was building scenery and designing posters, Anne and Alan were gathering

props, costumes and funds. Andrea, Danny and Terri were marketing and publicising.

For the two lead roles it was 6 months of rehearsing and memorising hundreds of lines of dialogue, exploring many ways of developing the characters and delivering lines,

and for the supporting roles it was 3 months of the same.

Below are some photos of Paul building the scenery whilst reciting 75 pages of dialogue...

who says men can't multi-task!
