En­ter Pratch­ett stage right at Jetty

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

COM­BINE pas­sion and Pratch­ett and you have the per­fect in­gre­di­ents for a great night at the the­atre. Lo­cal ac­tor and di­rec­tor Beck­ley Vin­cent is an avid fan of Terry Pratch­ett, a pro­lific writer and cre­ator of the Dis­c­world se­ries which en­joys cult sta­tus world­wide. Vin­cent re­cently di­rected a lo­cal pro­duc­tion of Wryd Sis­ters, which was well-re­ceived by fans and new­com­ers alike, and is now pre­par­ing for the cur­tain to go up to­mor­row night on the de­but of Lords and Ladies. Although tech­ni­cally a se­quel, Lords and Ladies is a stand alone pro­duc­tion and au­di­ences will en­joy be­ing whisked away to a world of good and evil, wiz­ards and witches, elves and dwarves and of course, a troll and a mon­key. Vin­cent is ex­cited about the cast and stag­ing of this pro­duc­tion “I like to use the whole the­atre, be im­mer­sive,” he said. “We are mov­ing some seats out to make space on the floor for the ac­tors. There is no di­rect in­ter­ac­tion with the au­di­ence but the ac­tion does hap­pen all around you.” “With a split stage I can get away with more and cre­ate at­mos­phere with sound and light­ing. “It’s a fast paced play, plenty of speedy short scenes to keep au­di­ences on their toes.” Many cast mem­bers of Wryd Sis­ters have been tempted to come back, along with some new tal­ent.
