JG wrote: “The 1 Act Evening is traditionally a chance for emerging directors to gain experience of the rôle, before moving on to the challenge of a full-scale production. However, the plays tonight are all directed by those with experience of the ‘big stage’ – Mark Best has frequently directed the Young Wick, and Roland Ham-Riche has previously taken charge of a musical for the company. Kevin Isaacs, who co-directs with Tom Harris, has also recent experience of directing a big Christmas show. This is fortunate because the challenge has been to bring a performance together in a very short space of time – the rehearsal period has been less than 4 weeks. I know the actors, both young and old, have also worked really hard and I am especially grateful for the backstage and technical support that I have received over the last week. I can feel a new team behind the scenes as well as on the floor!”
