Programme Note #1: Don’t Dress for Dinner

RD wrote “Comedy has always been a theatre form that I have enjoyed. It has immediate impact and is highly coloured by audience reaction.

Marc Camoletti’s high comedy leads form one comic crisis to crisis with the characters just managing to stop everything falling apart. I had immense fun with the cast of Don’t Dress for Dinner and they have developed into a team that worked well together. The production has become a two-way collaboration between them and myself.

As a founder member of the Wick Theatre Company I am honoured to have this opportunity to direct in this 50th Anniversary Season. My hope is that you will enjoy the play this evening as much as I have at every rehearsal.”
