A World Premiere hypes the occasion a bit too much, but certainly the new show has now been seen by real live people. I wasn’t optimistic many people would show, it being a cold Thursday in December, but our mini-seating bank was full with added rows on the floor.
The show has been made fast, written in about five days with six days rehearsal but it seems to stand up to scrutiny fairly well. We shall see.
I was pleased with the performances, the team were under considerable pressure and rose to the occasion. Some of the lines are still a little hazy and so wandered a bit as the performances expanded to meet the audience, but the energy was great. It’s a shame we only have three performances penciled in as I would love to see the show when it has been well worn in.
