Still waiting to wake up from this bizarre dream. A tiny virus is taking over the world and stopping us in our tracks for awhile. No theatre, no gigs, no meals out so sadly no blog. I could write about the changes we are all experiencing but I wouldn’t know where to start. So instead I will just say listen to advice and be sensible in following it. Look out for each other and be kind. But never lose your sense of humour and keep the funny little ditties circulating on social media, as a smile and a laugh floods the body with positive chemical which we all need right now. Good luck people, be brave xxx
A family tale told across five generations from wealth and successes in the late 1800’s through loss in war in the 1940’s and reflecting on the past, in 1955. This Tom Stoppard play is a history lesson and insight into a Jewish family’s life in Vienna across the years and how the prejudice, ignorance and persecution by others built and built into the resulting horrific crimes of the holocaust. A funny and warm play about a happy family with its ups and down and normalities of life that turns a solemn corner when their lives are changed forever by Nazi Germany. A thought provoking play that will have you laughing and crying. Lest we forget.
I was not planning on blogging about my visit to see my son’s 6th Form production of The Producers as being a school show I was expecting a fab night but just a school show. However I cannot keep quiet about what I have just witnessed. The Producers really was an outstanding production showcasing exceptional talent. Every voice, every dance move, every scene change, every actor took on the challenge with amazing maturity and absolutely smashed it, especially Emile Palmer-Almira whose accomplished performance as Max Bialystock blew me away. Sadly tomorrow is the final performance but luckily for me I’m going again!
