The Duke now has an extra prop to juggle with on stage.

He's managing OK (Cal says), and a couple of things have had to be changed due to his limited mobility, but the extra prop he has on-stage doesn't detract from the action.

Went to see it tonight and the cast have done a fine job of the play, though the scene changes do take rather a long time. Mainly to do with the fact that they have a rather narrow (like maybe 4 feet wide) rostra right accross the back of the staging area where several scenes take place.

This does seem to limit movement options for the cast during these scenes, and also rather squashes the side access to the floor from both wings.

Having said that about the physical limitations they have to work with, the cast themselves look to be really enjoying the play and that comes across to the audience quite well.

Tomjohn is really good, as are Nanny (of course, I would say that, but it happens to be true too) and the other witches.

They have found a great Fool and the Duke hobbles about like a trooper when he has to.

"Scene Stealer" goes to the ghost of Verence in my book, fantastic timing and delivery, and the same guy plays the Serjeant too.

All the cast made it a very enjoyble outing for me tonight.

If you are in the North West try and get there and support a good production.

They only filled a third of the theatre on opening night, and tonight wasn't much more full with maybe 60 in the audience, but everyone seemed to be enjoying the show.

I think it may be they just hit an unlucky slot for their performance as there have been two others productions of Wyrd Sisters in recent months, one on the Wirral and the other in Wavertree that might have sated the really local Patchett fans of their theatrical muse.
