Reptalk 27th May

Reptalk 27th Wed

The Two One Act Comedys are underway with rehearsals for both going strong this week and managing two plays at once is a big ask, but its going well.
‘Last Respects’ is looking good, with Frances Brown directing and Phil Portland assisting as her mentor. Pace, movements and delivery is creating energy for this short but very funny play that gives the cast a chance to become larger than life and have fun with their character.

There is some jostling about and underhand motives going on, so the audience must keep up with the twists and turns and work out some strange happenings amongst the most unlikely guests to a funeral parlour. ‘That Scottish Play’ has a large cast for a one act, and Phil Hudson manages the stage with ease and understands very well how to fold characters into multiple dialogue. There is a sense of the ridiculous in how these unruly personalties must be managed by a very harassed director on stage, but those with any experience in theatre will relate to the hilarious predicaments and characters. Phil Portland is again available to help if needed, and has a role as well, so a busy man but he clearly enjoys it.
Its wonderful to be able to have more of the folk of Repertory acting, as many have worked as tech, stage manager etc while hoping to get a chance to act again, so these shorter plays have offered this opportunity and its easy to see everyone is having fun.
The set for both plays is very simple, as is wardrobe, and so that has the focus firmly on the action onstage, fast paced and very funny.
News on the casts and tickets next week. Two One Act Plays performs June12 to 14. Keep up to date on Facebook.
