A Twist on the Scottish Play - Masham Players - Spring Production 2011
They say that when you're involved with the Scottish Play that things may go wrong. Well, Ron Smith decided to direct and act in Masham Players comedy version of The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society's Production of the scottish play written by David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.
Did I mention that this was his directing debut? Challenging is an understatement.
Now you're wondering what went wrong - but where to start! Everything that could have gone wrong did but, Ron pulled it all together and the result was three brilliant performances.
Now he's sleeping at night again and has deleted his therapist from his speed dial :-)
I have to say that these photographs are from the brilliant dress rehearsal (I was unable to attend the public performances) and I laughed my socks off. Brilliant comedy all round. Congratulations Ron and well done to everyone who took part.
I know what it's like to direct and having to pull everything together especially after directing Ding Dong last November. But all good fun, eh!
