So, here I am again, at the beautiful Sewell Barn Theatre in Norwich.
This time I’m directing Dennis Potter’s Brimstone and Treacle.
It’s exhilarating at this point. The actors know their lines, and we’ve discussed aims and objectives. The characters are coming to life and the set is growing around us.
Dennis Potter’s writing is wonderful. His use of language and rythm really gets under your skin, and as for the subject matter…remember that this playwright made his name tackling taboo subjects.
Everyone involved is a volunteer – no-one here gets paid, not even the Artistic Directors. The volunteers come from all walks of life but one thing brings them together. A love of theatre. This one in particular.
The show opens on 9th June, 2016. To book tickets and find out more go to http://www.sewellbarn.org.uk/current1.html
