Programme Note: Wait Until Dark

Written by Barrie Bowen:

“A twenty-first anniversary represents a significant milestone. The Wick is working hard on the plays to be presented to mark this anniversary year. We have progressed over these years, but cannot deny it is increasingly difficult to operate with the required efficiency. For this reason we have two other milestones we must reach this year.

Firstly, an increase of experienced actors, youth to train, and those interested in performing behind the scenes – often more ‘interesting’.

Secondly, a permanent home theatre workshop is necessary to develop our productions to even higher standards. This costs money, and although our reserves have increased through jumble sales and lotteries they are still insufficient, as you will have seen in the foyer tonight.

I believe we must play our part in providing live theatre in Southwick. I hope you will not think it impertinent to ask for your help in this. However small, it will help to maintain Southwick Theatre, of which you and Wick are essential ingredients.”
