Note from the Director ...



After joining St Nics for their highly sucessful and enjoyable production of 'Brassed Off' in September, I was surprised and flattered to be asked to helm their next production. On asking what the play was, I was told there wasn't one and we were to create a show from snippets of plays, songs, poems and anything else we thought worthy. As would be expected, there was no shortage of suggestions from the cast and crew and the end result is an eclectic mix of comedy, pathos and music.


The theme of 'love' is a somewhat arbitrary one. It can mean any number of things to any number of people. It is at once inspiring, despairing, uplifting, amusing, depressing, confusing and comforting. I have tried to reflect this in the choice of pieces we present to you tonight, as well as the different ways love can feature in life, either with couples, families, friends or even the divine ...


It has been an interesting ride creating this show, and has been a pleasure to work with this talented and versatile group of players. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the cast, the crew, the committee and in particular the producer, Jo Dobbs, for her tireless work and for keeping me in check.


Please now sit back, enjoy and remember, as the Beatles once said: I am the walrus (oh yes, and all you need is love ...)
