We have reached the end!
Since last November (even longer for the cast) we have been rehearsing and then performing "Tom and Viv".
We have travelled the length and breath of this Fair Isle to take part in various Drama festivals....some we won, some we didn't. But we made it.....we qualified for the All Ireland Finals which were held in Athlone this week.
We were performing on Sunday night. It was hard to believe that we were doing it for the last time
My costume had become my own personal weight-gain indicator! It was "snug" to begin with, to put it mildly,! Each performance told me how well I had behaved in the previous weeks. All I'll say is that the final performance was held two days after I returned from a holiday of debauchery in Turkey. The word "strait-jacket" comes to mind!
A little bit (okay,a lot) of make -up.............
..........we were transformed into the perfect downstairs/backstage crew.
