Only one week left now and we're really moving forward with it all!
Lines are almost completely learnt and we even have our exciting set pieced together in the rehearsal space for the cast and crew to work with. We'd love to show you a picture but... well, that would ruin the surprise wouldn't it?

We're getting there. We had a stagger-through on Friday to our first 'audience' (one person is still an audience!) and the reaction was very positive, with the actors doing a great job after such a hard-worked week.
Now we're just trying to make sure we really get at the heart of the text and that each and every line is delivered right... Not an easy feat, but we're managing pretty well thus far!
We genuinely can't wait for you guys to see this...
