This play really knocked me for six. The acting was brilliant. The writing was superb. The real hook of it though I think – as a performance – was the role played by Lisa Harrow; both the writing of it and her capturing.
I was lucky to get to meet her and chat with her during the play’s run. What a life. And story. And a thrill to hear some of her stories.
A year or so later I found the script to read and loved it and wanted to talk to playwright Victor Rodger. When he was in town with a new show I got that chance and took it.
I think about this play a lot – it was an amazing experience to view it. And to read it. And to speak to the two people most important in the creation and presentation of it.
Stubs is an occasional feature here at Off The Tracks – looking back through the ticket-stub box and remembering how the show went down.
