Friends have declared an interest, one of them already knew about it. Might be the friday evening if possible but won't know until nearer the time.

Hi Amy!

Congratulations to you and everyone involved in the play. I really enjoyed it and I think chris.ph did too. Some great casting and real laugh-out-loud moments. I liked the minimal use of props and scenery the acting was good enough that elaborate scenery wasn't necessary. :D

I particularly enjoyed the performances by Polly, Blouse, Jackrum and Tonker, but I couldn't fault any of the cast. Otto was just perfect and that's how I'll imagine him when I read the books in future. :lol:

My only gripe had nothing to do with the production - it was the seating. Three hours sitting on a church pew was tough. :?

And it was really great to meet up with Chris. We met up in the coffee shop before the performance and had a chat. I've always found forum meet-ups interesting because, although you've never met the person before, after a very short time you 'know' who the person is from their online postings, it's just that now you've got a face to put to that online persona. I enjoyed meeting you Chris! :D

my arse still aches :cry: :lol: :lol: but as tony said i thoroughly enjoyed it, igor stole the show for me :lol: :lol: very good use of the theatre itself utilising all the doors as means of access to the stage, i agree with tony about otto he had him down to a tee :D my only criticism is that vimes was to posh, he was basically a street hardened thug until he met lady s so didnt talk with a plum in his mouth more of a pebble :D i thought the barmaid was a very buxom wench and very well cast in her rolr but thats just me being an old perv :roll: :roll: seargent jackrum was very good and had a good stage presence :D

it was really nice to meet tony after talking on here for 4yrs and he is right its like you know somebody but its a complete stranger sitting in front of you but it did only take a couple of minutes to get chatting just a shame it finished so late and we couldnt really continue the conversation as i had a long drive home after it finished. so all in all a very good evening other than us serving penance on those bloody pews :D :D :D :D
