False Teeth Wanted

With opening night just over three weeks away, the pressure is now on for the cast and crew of our upcoming production of Joe Orton’s classic black comedy “Loot”. Fortunately everyone is “putting in the hard graft”, and the whole rehearsal process is proving to be, once again, a very enjoyable experience.

The cast have been extremely hard working. This is a carefully constructed play and it’s most important that the lines are learnt and delivered as the author intended – fortunately our team are working hard to ensure everything is presented as written – under the watchful eye of our ever-present prompt, Dee Brough. We have yet to delve further into character development, but that will begin in earnest this week.

While the cast are hard at work with rehearsals, the backstage machinations continue. A huge thanks to the folk who have helped out so far – Renovator’s Centre for supplying the fireplace, several kind Midweek readers who have provided us with a lovely 1950s hospital screen and authentic 1960s British banknotes, Masonic Rest home for the generous donation of a wheelchair, and City Furniture Exchange in Gonville who came up trumps with the wrought iron hospital bed. There are still a few key props to find however, so if any generous Midweek readers (or businesses) are able to help, we’d love to hear from you.

One of the more unusual props is a genuine (full set) of false teeth – these get used quite a bit throughout the course of the play (at one point they’re played like castanets) so they need to be fairly robust. Also we need a prosthetic glass eye (again, nothing too precious as it’s handled a lot during the course of the play) as well as a pair of genuine police handcuffs and a set of rosary beads – if any kind Midweek reader or business is able to help, we’d love to hear from you. We’re also after 1960s carpet, so if you are able to help with any of these requests please phone or text 0272709497 or send a message via the the Contact Us page.

In rehearsal for Rep's upcoming production of LOOT, Inspector Truscott (Dave Pitt) quizzes Nurse McMahon (Linda Kerfoot) about her decidedly murky past.
