Programme Note #1: Disappeared

A warm welcome to the Wick Theatre Company production of Disappeared.

My first encounter with this play goes back to my days as a penniless drama student at the start of the millennium when I picked up a heavily reduced copy from a closing down bookshop. I’d never heard of Phyllis Nagy or the play before. It was simply one ofa handful of modern plays I grabbed that day. I could so easily have picked up any umber of different ones.

It was one of the greatest bargains I have ever scored because I love this play, it is genuinely one of my all-time favourites. I hope tht you will love it too.

From the first time I read it – and then immediately re-read it -all those years ago to writing this note now, it has stayed with me, resonated with me and intrigued me.

I’m thrilled and delighted to have secured such a talented group of actors and crew members to bring this to life – the enthusiasm, energy, and willingness to experiment and bring ideas to the table has been brilliant. It has been a joy to work on and my heartfelt thanks to all who have been part of this journey.

Now, sit back and prepare to be immersed in intrigue because …Sarah Casey has disappeared.
