Light Days

Last night I went to see the tremendous production: Lighter Days. This was the second night of a series of productions by Almost Random Theatre

THREE HOURS of thrillers, humour, music and improvisation.


Copied from the programme these were the plays - note how it was a completely different schedule to the previous night:

Now what can be said about the above?
Well, the writers are not beginners. Reading from the programme, many of them seem to have won awards or been short-listed. So, good, tight, interesting scripts. Well, ....OK. It's the Friends Meeting House  which is not that great a venue as there's no blackout,focus lights, sound effects etc etc However overall the evening was just great! Go to the next one at Port Mahon on Monday!
