Programme Note #1: Funny Money

JG wrote: ” Welcome back to The Barn for another helping of farce, written by the master of the genre. I can’t pretend that this has been the easiest rehearsal period as, unfortunately, 2 members of the original team have had to drop out for health reasons [our best wishes go to Zoey Attree & Graham Till] and it has proven extremely difficult to get everyone into the same room until the last couple of weeks – something which is essential if every ounce of the comedy potential is to be extracted.

However, I am very lucky that we still have a cast who all have great experience of performing this type of comedy, including 2 Wick debutants, and who have all put in a lot of effort outside the rehearsal room as well as in, and I am most grateful for the additional support I have received from the backstage team and committee since I took on a rôle in the show. I am therefore confident that we can provide a performance worthy of the Wick [and of course Mr Cooney!] ”
