Play of the day
CONGRATULATIONS to Jack Heywood and his cast for the latest performance on stage currently at the Clink Theatre.
What a masterful performance of a very tricky script.
I was thrilled to see the play, And The Big Men Fly, had been so remarkably adapted to a live radio play.
It showed great stagecraft to adapt this script involving gun battles, helicopter rides, fist fights and multiple set changes into such a thrilling hilarious rollicking ride.
The audience involvement really carried the show on a truly live interactive gallop.
I congratulate those in the cast and crew who have committed so much time and focus to this show.
What I like most is that you really don’t have to like football to enjoy this show.
It was really great and I encourage the community to go along and treat yourself to a unique experience as live radio plays are rarely seen by the audience.
About three weeks ago I drove home after work right on dark to find the lights flashing orange (proceed with caution) and a couple of cars stopped not knowing what to do.
Eventually I got tired of waiting for the lead car and passed around them and drove on up with an entourage of 10 odd cars following.
Of course no work had been done to widen the road that day, so it’s one lane wide only and four blind corners, 250 metres long and cane trucks coming through, but someone programmes the lights to flash orange?
This is beyond a joke - it is a threat to life and a costly insult to all users of this road, and will still be lucky to be finished by the end of this year.
